Materials chemistry research group

The materials chemistry group are primarily interested in molecular material based upon liquid crystals. There are active industrial research contact with more than 10 companies.

 Areas of interest

Major themes include chirality, device materials, super- and supra-molecular liquid crystals, polymers and dendrimers, data  storage materials, liquid crystal nanoparticles, lyotropics, bent-core mesogens and metallomesogens, biaxial nematics, device demanufacture, electroluminescent materials, gel materialsas phantoms for X-ray treatment of tumours, biomaterials

Specific interests of the group include
