The research interests of the Mills group are wide and varied including: dye and semiconductor photochemistry, redox catalysis (in particular, oxygen catalysis), solar energy conversion (in particular artificial photosynthesis) and colour and fluorescence based indicators and smart inks and plastic films.

Chemistry at Work

Mills Group members, Luke Burns and Nathan Wells, took part in the Chemistry at Work event at Queen’s University Belfast. Hundreds of school children attended the two day event, and were introduced to current and emerging technologies being developed at Queen’s University of Belfast. The talk focused on non-antibiotic methods of antimicrobial technologies.
