Established in 2019, Midlands Materials Chemistry is a consortium of energetic researchers at the Universities of Birmingham, Warwick and Nottingham.

Our aim is to bring together people, generate ideas and share our latest findings, thus creating a vibrant community for Materials Chemistry research.

At its heart, the principal focus of Midlands Materials Chemistry is solid state chemistry, including established specialities such as materials synthesis, crystallography and property characterisation. However, the evolving, multidisciplinary nature of the solid state chemistry means that we naturally draw inspiration from several scientific areas, including molecular materials, self assembly, surface science and device physics.
