Centre for Advanced Materials and Industrial Chemistry (CAMIC)

The Centre for Advanced Materials and Industrial Chemistry (CAMIC) is a multidisciplinary centre that strives to undertake high quality fundamental and applied research.

The interconnected research themes in the centre allow materials scientists, nanotechnologists and applied scientists with industrial experience to undertake ambitious research projects from conception to real world implementation.

The Centre has six major research areas:

  • Applied electrochemistry
    New materials by electrochemical methods, fundamental and applied electrochemistry of metal surfaces.
  • Catalysis and chemical physics
    Heterogeneous catalysis with industrial applications, computational materials design.
  • Nano-biotechnology
    Innovative biomaterials and medical technologies based upon nanotechnology.
  • Organometallic chemistry
    Complexes of gold, palladium and platinum for catalysis and sensing applications.
  • Resource utilisation
    Chemical technologies related to mining: environmental concerns, uranium, copper and ore leaching.
  • Sensor design and engineering
    Industrial sensors for analytes of global environmental and health significance, such as mercury.
