The Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) is a key research strength at the University of Wollongong and is the lead node of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES). Professor Gordon Wallace and his team at IPRI are recognised internationally as world leaders in the development of ‘intelligent’ materials and nanotechnology.
Researchers work with materials in the nano-domain (that is, with particles as small as one billionth of a millimetre) where electronic conductivity is vastly higher than in larger structures. Their challenge is to make materials at these nanodimensions and assemble them into larger structures (micro or macro) that retain the special characteristics of the nanocomponents, resulting in improved functionality.
IPRI is renowned for expertise in the electrochemistry of organic conductors; especially when those conductors are used in the applications of artificial muscles, photovoltaics, batteries, and biomedical applications.
