Research interests

My research concerns the synthesis, characterization of polymers and crosses the boundaries of physical and organic chemistry. Particular interests and active programme include:

  • Synthesis and solution processing of novel oligo and polyacene organic semiconductors.
  • Fundamental studies on associating polymers under high shear process; e.g inkjet printing.
  • Assembly of topologically and structurally complex 2.5 and 3D functional materials by inkjet micro-deposition.
  • Bottom up assembly and stabilisation of organic, metallic and hybrid nano-particulates.
  • Synthesis and characterisation of functional aqueous polymers for coatings applications.
  • Functional polymer supports for selective metal recovery.
  • Synthesis and solution characterisation of polyethylene oxide block copolymers.
