Research at KCPC
The scientific program is managed by a team of scientists working in the generic area of Soft Matter. We host world-class researchers with expertise in polymers, colloids and surface chemistry. The research and training in the Centre is based on the following main themes:
- Organic synthesis
- Polymer synthesis
- Polymer self-assembly
- Hybrid natural/synthetic materials
- Formation and characterisation of polymer colloids
- Surface chemistry
The Key Centre has world-class facilities and equipment to study Soft Matter.
We have a program for short- and long-term research visits by senior undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
