The MacLachlan group is a collection of postdocs and PhD, Masters and undergraduate students all working with Prof. Mark MacLachlan in the Chemistry department at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. This blog aims to shed some light on the field of chemistry and daily life in a chemistry lab.
Our research is focused on materials chemistry. We make new chemical compounds with interesting properties then characterize them and study these properties. We develop diverse materials – solid-state structures, polymers, gels, glasses, and others – to address interesting scientific and engineering problems.
