Showing 1 to 10 of 17
  Computational design of hierarchical porous materials
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round
Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  Modelling the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for continuous manufacture
  Dr M Jorge, Dr A Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Metal-Organic Frameworks, or MOFs for short, are exciting nanoporous materials at the forefront of many new scientific discoveries.
  Direct Numerical Simulation of Ferrofluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round
Ferrofluids (magnetic or superparamagnetic fluids) are a special case of colloidal fluids, where single-domain, nanosize ferromagnetic partices are dispersed in a simple liquid.
  Direct numerical simulation of polymeric-fluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round
Polymers and turbulence are two of the most difficult problems in statistical physics. In the past, the study of polymeric liquids was divided in two categories.
  Developing a multiscale description of complex fluids from the molecular to the continuum scales
  Dr L Lue, Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round
Engineers have traditionally used continuum equations to model processes, such as the Navier-Stokes equation for fluid flow. These methods require constitutive relations that encode the properties of the fluid; these are typically determined empirically and have limited predictive capabilities.
  Modelling the effect of the electric double layer on electron transfer kinetics
  Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
Electron transfer between molecules in solution and a surface (e.g., a metallic electrode or semiconducting substrate) occurs in a wide variety of important areas, including catalysis, corrosion, electrodeposition, photochemistry, etc.
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round
Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
  Sustainable paper making using foam
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
Despite the advent of 21st century electronic communications, paper remains one of the most widely utilised materials in the world.
  Designing colloidal films and membranes with complex interactions
  Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round
Porous films and membranes are important for applications such as adsorbing, separating and storing gases, cleaning water and soils, sensor devices and many others.
  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.
