Welcome to the web pages of the Applied Materials Chemistry Group, a special interest group of the RSC.
This group focuses on industrial uses and opportunities for "effect" materials (i.e. materials which significantly enhance or determine the performance of a product). Application areas include, but are not restricted to: selective adsorption: protection and controlled delivery of actives, fuel additives, consumer goods applications (detergents, toiletries, healthcare etc.), nuclear industry uses, surface coatings, water and waste treatment, polymers and composites, catalysts and catalyst supports, fire retardants, and ceramics and glass.
