Solid State/Materials Chemistry embraces important areas including electronic, optoelectronic, magnetic and catalytic materials. In recent years another area has risen to prominence, that of ionically conducting solids (solid state ionics). These fascinating and unusual materials, which can exhibit levels of conductivity comparable to liquid electrolytes, hold the key to developing new devices for clean energy generation and storage such as fuel cells and batteries, vital to address the greatest threat facing humanity in the 21st Century i.e. global warming. Such materials are also the basis of many sensing devices as well as electrochromic displays and smart windows.

We are interested in the fundamental science of ionically conducting solids (which includes intercalation compounds and polymer electrolytes), in the synthesis of new materials with new properties or combinations of properties, in understanding these properties and in exploring their applications in new devices, especially energy storage devices such as rechargeable lithium batteries.

Peter Bruce is among the "The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds" as a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher for the fourth time in a row during 2015-2018!
