Organisation profile

Chemical engineering research at Strathclyde stretches across the boundaries of science and engineering; from controlled assembly of nanostructured materials to design of advanced reactors, and from combating global warming with novel energy storage and gas separation technology to understanding protein aggregation in degenerative diseases.

The department’s main research themes, nanostructured materials, biomolecular engineering, and low carbon technology, are described below. These over-arching themes are underpinned by particular strengths in multi-scale modelling, optical diagnostics, and adsorption measurement. Indeed, two-thirds of our research output was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent by the 2008 research assessment exercise.

We have strong links with other engineering and science departments, both within Strathclyde and externally.

Research Themes:

Nanostructured Materials  Key Areas of Research: Development, characterisation, measurement and modelling of novel nanostructured materials.

Biomolecular Engineering  Key Areas of Research: Bioanalytical technologies, biotherapeutics engineering, protein aggregation and assembly.

Low carbon technology  Key areas of research: novel materials and processes related to carbon capture, hydrogen storage, fuel cells and supercapacitors.

Multi-scale modelling  Key areas of research: theory and simulation of interfacial systems, aggregation processes in bulk and at interfaces, colloidal and soft matter, granular material.
