Welcome to the Ferguson Group

Welcome to the Ferguson Group

In our group we focus on the production of functional photocatalytic materials. We work on the production of heterogeneous photocatalysts, combining pure organic small molecule photocatalytic moieties with classical polymers. This synergistic combination creates a photocatalytic classical polymer that is highly photocatalytically active, and yet easily recoverable. Furthermore, this combination enables highly tunable photocatalytic polymers to be produced.  We are looking to implement this material into the following fields:
  • Photocatalytic polymers for the production of pharmaceutically relevant compounds.
  • Interfacial photocatalysis with amphiphilic photocatalytic polymers as a new tool for organic synthesis.
  • Employment of responsive photocatalytic classical polymers for photodynamic therapy and in situ drug production.
  • Production of enzyme mimics based on photocatalytic polymers and their use in synthetic biology.
