SOFT MATERIAL (SOF)

Soft Materials (SOF) department builds expertise to develop novel chemical synthetic pathways for precision (macro) molecular engineering, supra-molecular assemblies and frontier soft materials supporting key industries in chemicals, food, medical and lifestyle technologies. The range of capabilities of researchers from this department could be applied to develop soft matter solutions for a wide range of applications in biomedical, agriculture, aquaculture, antimicrobial coatings, (bio)sensors, membrane for ion sensors, thermogels, additive manufacturing materials, as well as functional wearable printed electronics.
