Graphene is a new age multifunctional material. As chemists, we are engaged in the growth, processing, derivatizing of graphene to make dna sensors, hybrids for solar cells, membrane for water purification. We hope to improve the quality of human life by researching on graphene, which we believe to be a fundamental building block for many useful devices.
The Environmental Nanoscience Initiative was set up by NERC, Defra and the Environment Agency in the UK to begin to answer some questions of basic nanosciences research; into fate and behavior, ecotoxicology and ecological effects of engineering nanoparticles.

The project focuses on the research and development of a new bioactive non-resorbable fibre-reinforced composite (FRC) material for load-bearing bone and joint implants in skeletal reconstruction of orthopaedic and trauma patients. A special emphasis will be placed on the development of bioactive and antibacterial surface treatments of the implants. Another objective is to produce novel composite-based bioactive resorbable fixation devices for ligament repairs of the knee and shoulder.
The ETM group focuses on unique strengths and capabilities to conduct world leading research, benefiting from synergies between: microelectronics; materials research and design to simulate nanostructures and technology processes and devices; fabrication in two in-house class 100-1000 clean rooms; characterisation of materials, devices and circuits; research on emerging electronic technologies
Research activities in the group encompass a wide range of themes at the cutting-edge of nanoscale science and nanotechnology - principal interests lie in the synthesis and characterisation of new nanomaterials, such as nanodiamonds, silicon nanocrystals, gold nitride (AuN) and photon reactions on ice.
