Mechanisms for engagement
The School has many mechanisms for engagement, in many cases as part of WestCHEM. Examples include:
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
The School's Complex Chemistry Lab 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. The Lab houses over 40 researchers with close links to external partners such as Unilever, GSK, and ACAL Energy. Click here for more information.
Transfer-printing for heterogeneous integration in manufacturing
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 systems, organic photovoltaics and solar cells. Our research infrastructure makes us extremely well equipped for developing potential industrial research projects as testified by our collaborative projects with Merck, Aixtron, Plessey Semiconductors, Energetics UK, Airbus, High Value Manufacturing Catapult (CPI) and other industrial partners.
