The interests in the Duncan Gregory Inorganic Solid State and Materials Chemistry research group lie in the synthesis, structure, and physical properties of inorganic solids. The underlying theme in our approach is to identify and modify materials on the basis of their atomic or ionic arrangements. To achieve this in exotic systems of materials requires use of original and unusual synthetic methodology. We are primarily concerned with investigating non-oxide systems where new structure types and bonding arrangements lead to unexpected and exciting properties. Our aims are to discover new materials with potentially useful physical properties, particularly with projected applications in electronics, information technology, and sustainable energy. The group's current research breaks down into several key areas: Non-oxide materials, hydrogen storage and sustainable energy materials, inorganic nanomaterials and sustainable materials processing.
