Particle Synthesis and Characterisation

Our researchers study solution and vapour phase synthesis routes for the production of inorganic particles down to the nanoscale. We investigate methods for optimising particle structure, chemistry and stability in liquid suspensions for applications in catalysis, CO2 capture and medical sciences. In collaboration with national and international partners, we are also evaluating interactions of nanoparticles with biological systems.
