What are free radicals?Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons. They are everywhere - in the air, our bodies and the materials around us. In their quest to find another electron, they are very reactive and can cause damage to surrounding molecules.
Centre SummaryThe ARC Centre of Excellence for Free Radical Chemistry and Biotechnology was established in 2005 through the award of an Australian Research Council grant worth $12 million. In 2009, the Centre was awarded a further $9.8 million to continue its innovative free radical research.
