Energy and Materials Chemistry


The Energy and Materials Chemistry group is concerned with the globally transformative issues of energy sustainability and climate change. The Group’s activities range widely within the Clean Energy theme and include computational modelling of materials for the nuclear industry and of transition metal complexes for homogeneous catalysis, nanomaterials for hydrogen generation through photocatalytic cleavage of H2O, new photovoltaics through nanoparticle technology and activation of small molecules through coordination to transition metals, lanthanides and actinides.

The grouping brings together colleagues from across the traditional disciplines in Chemistry with interests in the study and application of energy and materials chemistry.
