Adaptive & Responsive Nanomaterials Group


Adaptive & Responsive Nanomaterials Group

We are a research team at University College London, based at the Department of Chemical Engineering and with close links to the soft materials community across campus. We study material formation on the nanoscale by molecular self-assembly and build functional nanoarchitectures for a variety of fields ranging from chemical sensing and biomedical diagnostics to photovoltaics and optical coatings.
