Nanomaterials

Research focus

The ability to synthesise, characterise, and control the nanoscale structure of materials has revolutionised many traditional fields of chemical engineering and often moved process considerations from a macroscale view to one that must consider molecular and nanoscale interaction as an intrinsic part of the design. Chemical engineers at Monash University employ nanomaterials for a wide variety of applications including corrosion mitigation, water purification, catalysis, sensors, drug and gene delivery, theranostics, smart coatings, gas separation, functional food, and material composites.
