Research output: Book/ReportBook or reportpeer-review


New materials are required to solve global challenges such as the growing energy demand and reducing the threat of new and re-emerging diseases and infections. Metallopolymers is an exciting and promising area of research and this book focuses on the strategy of incorporating transition metals into macromolecules to design functional materials for addressing such problems.

The book starts with an introduction to current global challenges and the role of materials science in tackling these, it then discusses the fundamentals of metallopolymers and their synthesis. The final chapters look at specific applications of the materials from photovoltaics and light-emitting diodes for energy conservation, to biological sensors and drug delivery platforms.
