Monteiro Group

Research Focus

The Monteiro Group, led by Senior Group Leader Professor Michael Monteiro, takes a holistic approach towards polymer chemistry, understanding the fundamentals of kinetics and thermodynamics of polymers to create complex polymer architectures that can be custom designed to suit specific applications.

Taking their work on complex structures further, the Group studies emulsion polymerisation to make nanoparticles beyond the traditional spherical shape. Recent advances have enabled the creation of a range of shapes from loops, rods, worms, vesicles, and now a bicompartmentalised tadpole nanostructure.

Professor Monteiro has a joint appointment with SCMB.
