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.
Recent highlights by the group
Tuning pore dimensions of mesoporous inorganic films by homopolymer swelling
Multi-dimensional characterization of mixed ligand nanoparticles using small angle neutron scattering
Probing the interaction of nanoparticles with small molecules in real time via quartz crystal microbalance monitoring
Photocatalytic template removal by non-ozone-generating UV irradiation for the fabrication of well-defined mesoporous inorganic coatings
Optimising light source positioning for even and flux-efficient illumination
Recent developments in Pickering emulsions for biomedical applications
