Where interface Chemistry Meets Engineering

The Henderson research group is committed to utilizing world class organic chemistry and engineering principles and applying them towards the creation of innovative next generation materials. A leading research theme within our group is on the surface chemistry of carbon fibres, of which has faced many challenges over the years since its development in the 1960's.
