The Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), is a research institute of the Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). Established in September 1997, we have built strong capabilities in materials analysis, characterisation, design & growth, patterning, fabrication, synthesis and integration. IMRE is an institute of talented researchers equipped with state-of-the-art facilities such as the SERC Nanofabrication and Characterisation Facility to conduct world-class materials science research.

Chemistry is an integral part of the R&D that IMRE does, due to the multi-disciplinary nature of materials research. From synthesis of new materials to molecular materials research, chemistry is one of the key fields that helps IMRE develop core competence and interdisciplinary teams in critical technology and research in areas such as organic solar cells, nanocomposites, flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), solid-state lighting, nanoimprinting, microfluidics and next generation atomic scale interconnect technology.
