Nano and Materials Chemistry are actively pursued by the Department of Chemistry. The potential applications of nanoparticles are enormous, and include magnetic data storage (computers), exchange-spring magnets (tiny motors), photonics, separations, DNA detection, drug delivery, medical imaging and magnetic cancer therapy.
