Assoc Prof Andrew Clive Grimsdale
Associate Professor, School of Materials Science & Engineering
Assoc.-Prof. Grimsdale joined the School of Materials Science and Engineering in Nov 2006. He received his Bachelors, Master and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry from the University of Auckland, New Zealand in 1983, 1984 and 1990 respectively. His research interests include the synthesis of conjugated molecules and polymers for electronic applications, and supramolecular assembly of organic materials. He has done significant research work in his research areas and published over 160 top quality international journal papers which have received over 15,000 citations (h-index >50). He has often been a referee and reviewer for a number of premier journals, including Journal of the American Chemical Society, Macromolecules, Chemistry of Materials, Journal of Organic Chemistry, Journal of Physical Chemistry, Organic Letters, Angewandte Chemie, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, is on the editorial panel for Scientific Reports, and has acted as an external referee for PhD theses from foreign universities, of grant proposals for bodies such as the CERG grants committee, Hong Kong and the European Research Council, and as a judge of student projects for the Singapore Science and Engineering Fair.
Dr. Grimsdale is a member of the Royal Australian Chemistry Institute.
Prof Grimsdale's areas of expertise are the synthesis of conjugated molecules and polymers for electronic applications, particularly light-emitting diodes, solar cells and thin-film transistors. His current research work focus on the synthesis of materials for solar cells and transistors and on the supramolecular assembly of organic materials.

US 2012/0171575 A1: Energy Charge Storage Device Using a Printable Polyelectrolyte as Electrolyte Material (2017)
Abstract: An energy charge storage device, particularly from the group consisting of super capacitor, a hybrid electrochemica capacitor, a metal hydride battery and a fuel cell, comprising a first and second electrode and an electrolyte wherein the electrolyte comprises a printable polyelectrolyte e.g. polystyrene sulfonic acid (PSSH). The present invention also refers to methods of obtaining such energy storage device.
