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).


Our crew and colleagues at the World Science Festival in Brisbane @WSFBrisbane presenting a chemistry show to school students. Go Lewis and Vish! So important to anchor scientific thinking in society @QUTmaterials @QUT

Looking very much forward to this awesome conference!

Finally some refreshing views in the #AUKUS space, which is nearly completely missing from the public discourse Good on the @PressClubAust - we need deep critical debate and intellectual exploration of this particular piece of policy.
