Origin and stability of the dipolar response in a family of tetragonal tungsten bronze relaxors

Origin and stability of the dipolar response in a family of tetragonal tungsten bronze relaxors

A new family of tetragonal tungsten bronze dielectrics was studied using dielectric spectroscopy to probe the dynamic dipole response and by powder neutron diffraction (PND).

Protecting group and switchable pore-discriminating adsorption properties of a hydrophilic-hydrophobic metal-organic framework

Metal-organic frameworks are a class of solids that are candidates for many emerging gas storage, separation, catalysis and biomedical applications. Important features of these materials include their high porosity and their flexibility in response to chemical or physical stimuli.

Functionalizing hydrogen-bonded surface networks with self-assembled monolayers

Functionalizing hydrogen-bonded surface networks with self-assembled monolayers

Creating functionalised surfaces with precisely defined patterns is a major challenge in nanotechnology. One strategy relies on the combination of two concepts of molecular self-assembly, namely supramolecular networks and self-assembled monolayers (SAMs).

Mission Statement

EaStCHEM's key aim is for excellence in both core and interdisciplinary research, through the generation of a physical and intellectual environment that rivals the best in the world. EaStCHEM, the joint chemistry research School of the Universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews, was conceived in 2003 with the aim of harnessing the complementary capabilities and capitalising on the synergies of Scotland's two leading Chemistry Departments.
