Growing nanowires

A new paper published in Nature Chemistry  where molecular nanowires up to one micrometer long were grown on insulating materials using a novel radical polymerisation process. This addresses one of the key issues in molecular electronics  – how to produce wires to connect components. This was an interdisciplinary project involving some great teams of chemists,… Read More ›

Materials Chemistry Consortium conference comes to Lincoln.

The Materials Chemistry Consortium conference will be held at the University of Lincoln from 3-5 September. The Materials Chemistry Consortium is a EPSRC funded High End Computing network that administers a substantial fraction of the time available on the national supercomputer, ARCHER. Work presented will highlight the abilities of modern atomistic simulation methods to reveal… Read More ›
