Materials Chemistry Research Areas and Disciplines
Materials chemistry can focus on the basic sciences of chemistry and physics, and on the more applied areas such as metallurgy or ceramics. Recent engineering innovations and materials creation have led to important developments in communications, information technology, transportation, clinical diagnosis and care, and energy generation.
Some current research focuses on the development of instrumentation that can operate at the absolute limits imposed by nature. For example, an instrument that would allow scientists to directly detect the spin of a single proton is currently under development. This could find application in the field of quantum measurement and also direct structure determination of complex organic molecules single atomic resolution and sensitivity.
Researchers are also synthesizing new nanoscale organic materials with novel sensory, mechanical, biological, electronic and magnetic properties. Applicable areas include the development of molecular electronic devices such as switches and smart surfaces, which can lead to novel drug-delivery systems and smart templates for the bioseparation of one molecule from another.
