Our Polymer Science and Engineering research programmes have a long and esteemed history and today span a diverse range of themes and topics that have relevance to industrial needs worldwide.
Focus for polymer research Our polymer research is closely integrated and encompasses the research of several members of academic staff, both individually and in collaboration. The research is built around fundamental studies of structure-property relationships for polymer materials of current and future importance.
Active areas of polymer research include:
Biopolymers Coatings and Films Composites Deformation Micromechanics Fibres Multiphase Polymers Polymer Colloids Polymerisation Polymer Processing Responsive Polymers
