The Centre conducts research into the manufacture of micro- and nano- structured formulated products. Engineered microstructure is key to product function and consumer acceptability. The challenge is to develop sustainable design routes to create optimal structure, and to understand how structures behave in use. The science is the same across different industries, such as foods, home and personal care, catalysis and ceramics. Research is carried out with a group of industry partners who lead in their sector, including P+G, Mondelez, Unilever, Rolls Royce, Johnson Matthey and Imerys. Industry support of more than £10 million will be leveraged by EPSRC funding.
