This theme is recognised as one of the top UK solid state research groupings. Members undertake internationally-leading research across the breadth of materials chemistry and cover subjects as varied as energy and the environment; hydrogen storage; nanoscience; catalysis; biomaterials, multifunctional materials: magnetic/optical/electronic materials; crystal engineering & polymorphism.
The research groups have access to state-of-the-art equipment, both within the school and through well established external links. Members of the theme also have important collaborations with the other departments within the University, including Metallurgy & Materials and Chemical Engineering.
