Supracolloidal Chemical Engineering. We study the chemistry and physics of colloidal systems in which molecular and/or colloidal entities can be assembled into more complex supracolloidal structures, with the aim to produce innovative advanced materials . We are interested in the synthesis of particles and macromolecules with a design tailored to provide function, for example motility, or responsive photonic behavior. We investigate and develop methods to (self)-organise colloidal matter, and aim for an understanding of the interactions involved between molecular and colloidal building blocks and potential macroscopic substrates. We find it important that our technologies can be scaled-up and are of use in a variety of industrial applications ranging from sensors and devices, coatings and adhesives, to food, personal care, agricultural and biological systems.
