Mechanisms for Engagement

The School of Chemistry has many mechanisms for engagement in many cases as part of WestCHEM. Examples are:

  • Transfer-printing for heterogeneous integration in manufacturing is the part of Energy Conversion and Storage grouping labs. We are at the forefront of transfer printing applications to provide efficient routes towards integrated systems made from pure and/or hybrid inorganic/organic materials. The research  targets the synthesis of novel OLED materials and their device structures. We have developed technologies aimed at advancing green chemistry routes towards natural product synthesis, solar-to-fuel cells, batteries, thermoelectric heat recovery system, organic photovoltaics and solar cells. Our research infrastructure makes us extremely well equipped for developing potential industrial research project as testified by our collaborative projects with Merck, Aixtron, Plessey Semiconductors, Energetics UK, Airbus, High Value Manufacturing Catapult (CPI) and other industrial partners.

  • Glasgow Centre for Physical Organic Chemistry. The Glasgow centre for physical organic chemistry is a newly established research centre - having received £4.4 million investment) - involving research teams from WestCHEM and SIPBS across the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde. The centre provides a unique continuum of expertise to tackle research opportunities in areas as diverse as materials chemistry, synthesis methodologies and pharmaceutical discovery and development.

  • Complex Chemical Systems lab, which is extremely well equipped for research into several major applications ranging from the development of evolutionary chemical entities, inorganic cells for water treatment, materials for solar fuel devices to the production of potential drug and drug delivery candidates and houses over 40 researchers with close links to external partners such as Unilever, GSK, and ACAL Energy.
