The materials chemistry expertise at the University of Manchester is extensive with particular strengths in:

  • The design, synthesis and characterisation of novel monomers oligomers and polymers
  • Novel organic semiconductors and dielectrics for use in printed electronics
  • Functional materials for use in sensors
  • Porous materials including polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIMs) and nanoporous inorganic materials
  • Nanoscale materials
  • Structured carbons including graphene, graphene oxide and nanotubes
  • Surfactants, emulsions and colloids
  • Biomaterials based on polymers and peptides
  • Inkjet printing of a wide range of functional materials
  • Crystallisation of functional materials

Within the School of Chemistry there are two centres devoted to specific aspects of materials chemistry. They are the Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC) and the Centre for Nanoporous Materials (CNM).
