Crystal clear - CrystalGrower
CrystalGrower is a tool to develop a greater understanding of how crystals grow at the nanoscale through simulation of crystal habit and surface topography that, in turn, helps predict and control functionality.

With the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic still being felt around the globe, there is an ever-greater need for antiviral protection. Broad-spectrum antiviral agents have the potential to destroy a wide range of viruses and can be used in a wide variety of applications beyond drug modalities. This new platform technology is suitable for incorporation into antiviral coatings and could therefore transform the practice of sterilisation forever.

Boiling stones - Zeolites
Zeolites, derived from the Greek words zeo (to boil) and lithos (stone), are aluminosilicate minerals that seemed to froth or boil when heated in a blowpipe in flame. Zeolites are used in a lot of industries due internal pore structure. We have developed a novel method of making zeolites with a tailored porosity in a timely and energy efficient way that also improves its performance in catalysis.
