The group work upon the design, synthesis and characterisation of functional materials for a range of optoelectronic applications, including field effect transistors, photovoltaic devices, light emitting diodes and sensors. Their work is highly multi-disciplinary and collaborative covering aspects of organic, polymer and materials chemistry with a central theme of establishing relationships between molecular design, synthetic methodology, processing and performance. Our research has so far led to the filing of more than 100 individual patents comprising over 40 patent families, and has led to the publication of more than 240 peer-reviewed articles in high profile journals, which have been cited more than 20,000 times to date.
