Dr Ross Forgan

  • Reader (School of Chemistry)

Research interests

Research in the Forgan group centres on the development of porous materials for application in green technologies. Exploiting the principles of supramolecular chemistry, we utilise organic and inorganic chemistry to design functional solid-state materials and gain a greater understanding of the fundamentals that govern their self-assembly, structure and materials properties, with applications in carbon dioxide uptake, catalysis and biomedicine. We are constantly seeking new members with a broad range of experience – please contact Dr Forgan by email for more information and see our website for current vacancies.
