The Centre for Materials Science (Chemistry) has two main research themes: Biological Materials and Functional Materials
The Functional Materials Grouping has particular expertise within the following areas:
Functional Materials at UCLan is internationally recognised with our staff awarded visiting chairs and regularly invited to present at international conferences. The impact of our research is delivered through very close collaborations with industrial partners. In particular research has driven forward the areas of magnetic bio-separations, food bio-sensors, hierarchically ordered porous superparamagnetic nanocomposites, drug delivery, heterogeneous catalysis, lipid nanostructures and nuclear waste remediation.
Nano and porous materials
Organometallic chemistry and catalysis
The approach to impact for the Centre for Materials Science (Chemistry) has led to research outputs with high impact. CMS has focused on three main themes to maximise the impact of our research:
