Polymer Chemistry @ University of Glasgow
Our group is working on four different topics in synthetic polymer science:
- Hydrophilic polymers for self-assembly and phase separations
- Polymer/Metal-organic framework hybrid materials
- Carbon Nitride in polymer chemistry
- Lignin-based polymer materials
We mainly work with controlled radical polymerization techniques as well as modular ligation reactions and photochemistry for the development of novel materials.

We are a multi-national team of chemists and materials scientists but we are always looking for skilled and motivated coworkers.
