Amphiphile-induced frustration in liquid crystals

Amphiphilic compounds self-organise so that the incompatible parts of the molecule are separated from one another (e.g. micelles); the exact same principle holds for liquid crystals (LCs). Read more

Electrochemical Modification of Copper Electrodes for Carbon Dioxide Electro-Reduction

Background. Electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide at a copper surface, the carbon dioxide reduction reaction (CO2RR), is a potentially sustainable and scalable method of converting carbon dioxide into valuable molecules and delivering a low carbon future. Read more

Using cryoEM to understand pathogen antibiotic transport and resistance

Background. A number of dangerous pathogens are increasingly resistant to our front-line antibiotics, raising the prospect of a ‘post-antibiotic era’ where we can no longer treat infectious diseases. Read more

Nutrient-Mediated Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials

Background. Microbial resistance to antibiotics is a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. Read more

Greener solvents for industrial polymers

Introduction. A number of industrially relevant polymers such as polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are particularly difficult to recycle, partly because of the solvents and conditions needed to dissolve them. Read more

Realising the Potential of Earth-abundant Metal Catalysis.

Background. Transition metal catalysts play a key role in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and modern materials. Currently, this area is dominated by the use of expensive and rare platinum group metals such as ruthenium, rhodium and palladium. Read more

Photocatalytic solar energy conversion

There is a clear need to develop processes that minimise the consumption of limited energy resources and reduce waste detrimental to the environment. Read more
