Ceramics Research Group


Summary of Activities

Advanced ceramics find application in a myriad of everyday-use-equipment. In spite of the potential for becoming a leader in this area, there is little or no work being done in this area in Nigeria. This group is interested in the use of structural ceramics as an alternative ‘tropical building material’ with a view to reducing maintenance costs accruing from activities like- painting. The group is also interested in the application of modified ceramics in reducing contamination in hospitals and kitchens/ restaurants as well as other applications.
