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
Fractionation of block copolymers for pore size control and reduced dispersity in mesoporous inorganic thin films
Synthetic guidelines for the precision engineering of gold nanoparticles
Comparative characterisation of non-monodisperse gold nanoparticle populations by X-ray scattering and electron microscopy
Information entropy as a reliable measure of nanoparticle dispersity
Acoustic immunosensing of exosomes using a quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring
