We are the The Greenwell Group

The Greenwell Group consists of a team of researchers at Durham University, with expertise in computational and experimental chemistry, working together to gain a fuller understanding of the structure, properties and reactivity of layered minerals with particular emphasis on how these minerals and organic matter interact, and to investigate applications of this knowledge. To this end the group contributions are from a wide range of researchers from different backgrounds and research areas.
