More about this group

The overarching aim of this diverse, interdisciplinary activity is to pioneer innovative chemically based approaches to new forms of soft and hard multi-functional matter organised over a range of length scales in order to achieve a deeper understanding of its behaviour and emergent properties.

We have a particular focus on hybrid materials and nanostructures and offer expertise in nanotechnology, bio-organic and inorganic synthesis, allowing a plethora of functional materials to be created.

These encompass superconductors, semiconductors, catalysts, magnetic molecules, metal-containing polymers and diamond thin-film.

Aspects of this activity are promoted via the School’s Centre for Organised Matter and via direct links with the Nanoscience and Quantum Information Centre and the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials EPSRC CDT.
