Prof Ian Kinloch

My research focuses on polymeric and carbon (graphene and nanotubes  and related nanomaterials. The research takes the science from the controlled growth of the nanomaterials through to their processing and applications. My research on applications is on polymer-nanocarbon composites, electrodes and the bio-nano interface.
