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.

Microporous Polymer Catalysts

Porous materials such as naturally occurring and synthetic zeolites are widely used in industry as heterogeneous catalysis due to their high internal surface areas. Read more

Dispersible Microporous Polymers

Porous materials are of interest due to their high surface areas which can be used to adsorb wide range of molecules for a variety of applications, however they are typically insoluble, difficult to process and limited to applications in the solid state. Read more

New anticancer therapies based on transition metal complexes

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death around the world. Over 50% of cancer tumours are treated with platinum-based metal complexes, like cisplatin and its derivatives. Read more

Nanoplasmonic measurements on biological molecules

Recently we have developed fast, inexpensive, simple routes to nanostructured proteins1 and metals, including macroscopically extended, nanostructured arrays of gold nanoparticles. Read more

Live Plants Imaging: investigating signalling and response mechanisms

To achieve food security, we can improve the efficiency of food production while reducing the use and cost of pesticides. To tackle both challenges, efficiency and cost, we propose to select crop varieties that are more resilient against pests and diseases. Read more

Materials and processes for the abatement and degradation of organic pollutants in water

The provision of clean water is a global issue with societal, health, and economic implications. An important challenge is the removal of aromatic solvents and chlorinated compounds, which are very frequent pollutants in both industrial and rural areas, and which are highly toxic. Read more

Quantum Control: shaping light to enhance chemistry

By modulating the light with which you excite materials we can enhance specific electronic, nuclear and even chemical reactions! The goal is therefore to set up a MIIPS pulse shaper and to adapt it to our Helios transient absorption system.. Read more

Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society. Read more
