Materials Chemistry

KTN recognises that this sector is heavily reliant on laboratory-based R&D, as well as computational techniques for modelling the behaviour of atoms, molecules and colloids across multiple length and time scales.

Materials Chemistry

KTN can help organisations who apply chemistry, physics or engineering to perform R&D on materials (hard and soft) or who have technology that can be used in this way.

Common challenges include structure-function relationships, scale-up, product reformulation, long term aging behaviour and optimisation for performance and cost.

We can help anybody who applies chemistry, physics or engineering to perform R&D on materials (hard and soft), or has technology that can be used in this regard. Tech areas targeted: materials, chemistry, formulation, scale up, digitisation, formulated products.

We’ll help you connect you across the supply chains and research base in a wide variety of sectors, including FMCG, composites and coatings, construction materials, pharmaceuticals, energy storage, food and drink, plastics.
