Environmental Transmission Electron Microscopy for Sustainable Materials Development: Modifying the Photocatalytic Properties of TiO2

Background. Understanding the (photo)chemistry of TiO2 is critical to current commercial (£20 billion) and future applications. Current applications include pigments, protective coatings, sunscreens, and self-cleaning surfaces. Read more

Reactive extrusion based synthesis of thermoplastic cellulose derivatives

The overall goal of the project is elaborating sustainable and up-scalable method for synthesis of thermoplastic cellulose derivatives using fully biobased reagents and mechanochemical action of reactive extrusion. Read more

Viral-surface interactions studied by vibrational sum-frequency spectroscopy

The recent COVID-19 pandemic, and in particular fomite transmission of the virus, led to a lot of interest in how viral particles attached to surfaces, their survival times on different materials and how they transferred to hosts. Read more

Development of a wafer-scale graphene MEMS manufacturing process

Graphene is the ideal membrane material for micro/nano electromechanical systems (M/NEMS) due to its high stiffness and strength, high elasticity, high electrical and thermal conductivity and low areal mass. Read more

Fire performance and durability of integrated engineered timber products (Ref: ABCE24/SC2a)

Engineered timber products have greatly increased the scope of structural projects that can be realised in timber; however, revised building regulations post-Grenfell, based on perceived risks surrounding fire safety, further restricted the allowable scale of timber buildings, thus impeding efforts to decarbonise construction. Read more

Biopolymer Approval Platform for Pharmaceutical Primary Packaging (SETU_2024_222)

Project Key Words. Analytical Chemistry, Polymer Characterisation, Drug Formulation. Post summary. The use of biopolymers in pharmaceutical primary packaging is an attractive alternative to petroleum based polymers, due to their biodegradability and reduced environmental impact. Read more

Fundamental aspects of superconducting qubits and related quantum devices

Superconducting quantum devices are microelectronic devices operated in the quantum regime and have proved very successful, they currently underpin a very successful approach to quantum computing through various types of single and multi-qubit devices, as exemplified by Google and IBM among others. Read more

Super-Smart Textiles: A Self-Powered Wearable Technology for Remote Health Monitoring (Ref: UF-ID-2024)

According to the World Health Organisation, over 1 billion of the global population suffer from disabilities. However, access to rehabilitation care has been a global issue due to lack of resources including infrastructure and trained professionals. Read more
