Healable Polymer Materials

The past four decades of science have witnessed how chemists have learnt from nature, in part by trial and error as well as elegant design, to understand and master the use of weak non-covalent interactions and self-assembly processes in synthetic systems to realise complex multi-component assemblies that exhibit attractive functionalities.

PhD in Physical Chemistry: Uncovering structure in the next generation of sustainable batteries

We have a vacancy for a PhD student working in the area of physical chemistry. While lithium dominates current battery technology, there is considerable drive to move away from lithium salts to more abundant or lower cost alternatives. Read more

Theremoelectric Nanomaterials for Energy Recovery

Thermoelectric materials offer the unique capability to convert waste heat directly into electrical energy. Efficiency is related to a figure of merit (ZT S2sT/k), that is determined by the Seebeck coefficient (S), electrical conductivity (s) and thermal conductivity (k). Read more

Inspired by nature: sulfide minerals as sustainable and efficient thermoelectric materials

We have a vacancy for a PhD student to join a project at the forefront of research in thermoelectric materials, which can be used in devices for the direct conversion of waste heat into electrical power. Read more

New Materials for Solid-State Batteries

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are widely used in mobile applications. However, concerns about the availability of lithium and cobalt raw materials suggest alternative materials may be needed in future large-scale applications. Read more

Photochemical synthesis of new drug-like scaffolds

Our laboratory is interested in the application of enabling technologies, such as continuous flow[1] and photochemistry,[2] for the synthesis of useful functional molecules such as drugs, agrochemicals and materials. Read more

Unusual properties of New Inorganic Framework Materials

"We have a vacancy for a PhD student to synthesise and characterize new materials with open-framework structures, such metal phosphates, transition-metal cyanides or metal-organic compounds. Read more

Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.

The proposed research area concerns the fabrication and study of the behaviour of mesoporous electrodes. The main focus of the project will be to undertake the control of surface macro-morphology and nanostructure and to investigate how these properties influence surface activity and electrode performance.
