Research Interests

The synthesis and characterisation of new materials, primarily using solvothermal synthesis. In this technique, reactions occur in solvents at temperatures above their normal boiling points by containing the reaction mixture within a pressure vessel. We have found this method to be particularly good for preparing porous materials for hydrogen storage and gas separation as well as new magnetic materials.
