Abstract

L. R. Hanton BSc (Hons)(Otago) PhD (Cantab) FNZIC. Professor Lyall Hanton’s research is concerned with the structure and function of extended chemical systems, with the aim of developing new advanced materials. His interests include extended metal-organic arrays, polymers and gels. Metal-organic arrays can be engineered to contain cavities and channels to hold and store targeted solvent or gas molecules. His research team is working to incorporate certain metal-organic systems into polymer gels to develop ‘wetware actuators’. They are also developing tough hydrogels and biopolymer-based surgical gels for wound healing applications.
