reactivity of solids

Our group aims to understand how mechanical force can be used to influence the behaviour and reactivity of solids, with particular interest in material dynamics. We have a wide range of interests in this area, spanning mechanochemical synthesis, mechanically responsive materials, and material design. We run an interdisciplinary research programme that spans both computational chemistry and experiment.
