Real World Applications

Polymeric materials are essential for our everyday life. The Soft Matter Materials team aims to translate its chemistry into real-world applications through a number of ongoing ARC Linkage collaborations and direct bilateral funding agreements with our industrial partners.

Examples of these projects include:

In addition to these Linkage based projects, our team is supported through direct funding by a number of other industry collaborations ranging from next generation automotive foams (Evonik) to high performance inks for coating materials (Siegwerk).


Congratulations to Jessica Pelloth, our most recent PhD graduate. Check out some of Jessica’s and ⁦@VinhXTruong⁩’s cool work on light responsive hydrogels in Advanced Materials here ⁦@QUT⁩ ⁦@QUTmaterials⁩

Thank you ⁦@HouckHannes from ⁦@warwickchem⁩ - one of our joint PhD alumni with ⁦@Filip_Du_Prez⁩ -⁩ for an excellent talk today ⁦@QUTmaterials⁩. Fun and productive photochemistry planning session - exciting science ahead ⁦@QUT

Thanks so much for having us on board for the 3rd anniversary special issue @TrendsChemistry
