Research Focus

Martin group photo, AIBNThe Martin Group, led by Senior Group Leader Professor Darren Martin, is investigating ways to replace or improve everyday materials such as plastics, rubbers, packaging, insulation foams and carbon materials, many of which are unsustainably sourced from petrochemical-derived materials, with sustainable alternatives or additives. In developing these new materials technologies, the group also seeks to enhance the mechanical properties and performance compared to existing products.
