Eleanor briefly explains our research interests in a short video that can be found here.


Most of our research concerns nanocarbons: fullerenes and nanotubes. This covers a range of topics including very fundamental studies of the interaction of femtosecond laser pulses with complex molecules (fullerenes, polycyclic hydrocarbons); properties of isolated fulllerene molecules of relevance for astrochemistry and the synthesis and characterisation of highly porous carbon-based materials (carbon nanotube aerogels) for capturing CO2 from dilute gas streams.  Click on the links above to proceed to specific areas.
