Polymer and Materials Science at The University of Sydney


Polymer Nanostructures Group at The University of Sydney, Australia.


Nanoscience defines a multidisciplinary research endeavour aiming at finding new ways to tackle current issues in the fields of sustainable materials, renewable energy and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The ability to control the synthesis of materials at the nanoscale allows us to produce tailor-made nanomaterials with distinct properties. In our group, we are interested in finding new ways to access unprecedented polymeric and hybrid nanostructures. Our aim is to produce complex and multifunctional nano-scale materials for applications in catalysis, energy, sensing and nanomedicine. Polymer science provides the ideal playground for creative materials design.


We are located within the School of Chemistry, and the Key Centre for Polymers and Colloids (KCPC) - a specialised centre for polymer research and training - featuring state-of-the-art facilities for the study of polymers, soft matter and hybrid materials.
