Angove - Colloid, environmental and pharmaceutical science
Dr Michael Angove
Head of Pharmacy and Applied Science, College of Science, Health and Engineering
Soils are complex mixtures of minerals, organic material and water. Understanding how these colloidal components interact is critical to us being able to assess the overall sustainability and health of environmental and agricultural soil systems. Our research seeks to understand the nature of these interactions so that we are better placed to manage soil environments, and even rehabilitate soils that have been damaged and contaminated through various human activities.
Colloid chemistry has many important applications in pharmaceutical science, and so this research group also has an interest in the development and understanding of pharmaceutical products that utilise colloidal particles and systems.
