The research efforts of Professor Apblett`s research group are concerned with
the application of metallo-organic and inorganic materials chemistry to the
multitude of problems that are faced by industry today. Such challenges as improved
methods of extracting minerals and recycling waste materials, the direct "one-pot"
conversion of minerals to useful commodity chemicals and polymers, new catalytic
processes, pollution prevention and remediation and novel processing techniques
and products, are all addressed by our research. Target products include high
technology materials, artificial bone, catalysts, ion exchange materials, inorganic
polymers, medical detectors, and metallo-organic compounds that are therapeutic
agents for cancer treatment.
