Multifunctional Metallopolyynes: Synthesis, Functions and Applications »

2pm 9 August 2018

Inclusion of transition metal elements into organic scaffolds allows the hybridization of the interesting physical characteristics of metal complexes such as electronic, optical and magnetic properties with the solubility and processability inherent to the organic-based molecules. This lecture highlights the recent development of some multifunctional rigid-rod metallopolyynes which can exhibit easily tunable luminescent and electronic properties.

Sugar coated plastic nanoparticles for nanomedicine »

2pm 2 August 2018

Nanoparticles are widely proposed as a way to improve the treatment of cancer to reduce known side effects by packaging the drug into nanoparticles. Nanoparticles can be made from various materials including metals, empty viruses and polymers. Among them, polymers offer the greatest flexibility as they can be processed into different shapes with different softness. Interestingly, nature’s own highly successful nano-objects, viruses, have often elongated structures. Using the latest advancement in polymer synthesis, we design nanoparticles that resemble natural nanoparticles.

Computer Modelling as a tool in Materials Chemistry »

12pm 26 July 2018

Richard Catlow is developing and applying computer models to solid state and materials chemistry — areas of chemistry that investigate the synthesis, structure and properties of materials in the solid phase. By combining his powerful computational methods with experiments, Richard has made considerable contributions to areas as diverse as catalysis and mineralogy.
