Welcome to the Materials Research Institute
A centre of excellence providing the platform to support dynamic inter-disciplinary materials research, in collaboration with academia, research councils and industry professionals.
Queen Mary has a strong tradition of materials-based research. The creation of the Materials Research Institute (MRI) brings together a range of expertise within several Schools: Engineering and Materials, Physics and Astronomy, Biological and Chemical Sciences, and Dentistry to create a coherent interdisciplinary activity focused on five key research themes.
- Versatile cellulose based carbon aerogel for the removal of both cationic and anionic metal contaminants from water. ACS applied materials & interfaces
- Co-Assembly, spatiotemporal control and morphogenesis of a hybrid protein-peptide system. Nature Chemistry vol. 7, (11) 897-904.
- Hydrothermal Carbonization of Digestate in the Presence of Zeolite: Process Efficiency and Composite Properties. ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering vol. 3, (11) 2967-2974.
