Professor Michael Wilson is a world expert on the development of methods of preparing fullerenes and nanotubes from industrially cheap materials such as coal. He has published over fifty refereed journal papers on fullerenes and nanotubes. His contributions to carbon nanotechnology include the detection of the first odd numbered carbon nanotube and the discovery that the natural abundance isotope ratio in nanotubes differs from fullerenes. He has established an international profile on development of high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques in geochemistry particularly for soils relevant to petroleum refining and for the analysis of poorly ordered aluminosilicates- a wonderful way of detecting short range order in materials which do not give X-ray diffraction spectra. Prof Wilson’s role in the Centre is to lead and to provide expert opinion on areas of nanofibres and nanotube formation. The Centre also benefits by his extensive managerial experience as the former Chief Research Scientist and his long record of turning new science into practical money-making commercialised projects.
