Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.

New polymers and formulations for 3D printing of soft materials

  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
The Edmondson research group is based in the Department of Materials at The University of Manchester. Our research sits at the interface of polymer chemistry and polymer characterisation, with particular expertise in. Read more

Modulation of Protein Function using Molecular Imprinting

Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) are simple, elegant biomimetics that incorporate binding sites bearing steric and chemical functionality complementary to a given target. Read more

Wrapping virus-like particles in polymer films using protein-carbohydrate interactions

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Polymer films are widely used as barriers to protect objects from their environments or improve their performance.? What if tiny nano- or micron-sized objects could also be wrapped in thin layers of polymer films? Would they also gain benefits from their inclusion in wrappers in the same ways as macroscopic objects do? These questions lead to tantalising possibilities. Read more

Covalent Recruitment of Polymer Therapeutics

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. Read more

Bioinspired materials: strong and self-healing polymer materials

Biomaterials, for example bone and skin have a remarkable capacity to self-heal. These natural materials are hydrogels, however synthetic hydrogels cannot perform the same task as they are inherently weak and not usually self-healing. Read more

Externally activated adaptive networks

The problem of plastic waste is well established, but the focus has been on packaging. However, other plastics such as polymer composites (e.g., carbon fibre reinforced resins) have significant environmental benefits in use, such as a reduced fuel consumption, but are almost completely non- recyclable.

Automation of biodegradation testing using robots

This opportunity will remain open until the position has been filled and so early applications are encouraged. A fully funded PhD studentship is available in the area of polymer synthesis and biodegradability assessment, to work in a team of scientists funded by the EPSRC Prosperity Partnership ‘. Read more
