Welcome to the Bennett group!


We are based in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy (University of Cambridge), and focus on the the intersection of the hybrid material and amorphous domains. We also work on the thermo-mechanical properties of crystalline framework materials.


Welcome to New Group Members!

A warm welcome to all of our new group members — looking forward to an exciting year!

Porous Materials Interest Group

The organising committee for the annual UK ‘MOF and Porous Materials’ symposium have been assessing the feasibility of a new Royal Society of Chemistry Interest Group on ‘Porous Materials‘. However, to progress this any further, we need at least 50 members of the RSC to indicate their support and willingness to join the group, if the proposal is accepted.

The proposal can be downloaded below:

If you are not a member of the RSC, but still support the group, there is an opportunity to sign in a second table.
