Facilities in IINM

The IINM hosts extensive facilities and equipment for the synthesis and characterisation of an array of nanoparticles and the manufacture of polymer nanocomposites. We carry out both fundamental and applied research in these areas. Our research group collaborates with major industrial partners and leading academic groups worldwide.
