Advanced characterisation of polymer-modified surfaces

Surfaces of any kind which are modified with a thin layer of polymer are of increasing interest to scientist and industry. Therefore, advanced characterisation of these modified surfaces is of paramount importance to better understand the synthetic strategies for tailored surface modification.

Plasma catalysis

Plasma catalysis is a rapidly emerging multidisciplinary field at the interface of catalysis, nanotechnology, physical chemistry, materials and plasma science. Relevant applications include plasma-assisted catalytic reforming of gas mixtures into fuels, chemicals and synthesis of functional nanomaterials.While the physical properties and reactive chemistry of atmospheric-pressure plasmas (APPs) are relatively well understood, little is known about the mechanisms of the APP interactions with the nanometer-size features on the surface of catalyst nanoparticles (NPs). These mechanisms are crucial to explain the effects …

Thermochemical conversion of wastes to energy and chemicals

Reducing society’s dependence on fossil fuels requires replacement of chemical building blocks currently sourced from the petrochemical industry. Nature produces over 150 billion tonnes of biomass per year by photosynthesis, with only 3-4% used by humans for food and non-food purposes. So, as biomass is abundant and a renewable resource of fixed carbon it can be used to produce chemical building blocks, fuels and chemicals.Thermochemical conversion processes and low temperature hydrolysis are typically suited for the transformation of biomass, waste …

Hydrophobic and anti-fogging coatings for better endoscopic imaging

Keyhole surgeries rely on the use of so-called endoscopes that are essentially camera-guided instruments. Surgeons heavily rely on the visual feedback provided by such endoscopes in performing minimally invasive surgeries. However, the image quality provided by such endoscopes is routinely compromised when body fluids and fogging occlude the lens.In this project you will explore the use of novel nanomaterial in the role of hydrophobic and anti-fogging layer towards preventing the vision loss after repeated submersions in synthetic blood and similar …
