Welcome to Energy and Materials Chemistry

The principal research thrust of the Energy and Materials Chemistry group concerns 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 research is supported by funding from the European Research Council, the EPSRC, the Technology Strategy Board, the Royal Society, the Leverhulme Trust, Veeco Labs and other bodies.
