Chemistry, Department of : [1223] Community home page

The Department of Chemistry’s staff and research programmes place it at the leading edge of scientific research. The national and international research carried out in the Department has been recognised by the award of a grade 4 rating in the Research Selectivity Exercise.

Research in the Chemistry Department is divided into four main themes:

Centre for Chemical Biology:
Biocatalysis and biotransformations; computational chemistry; medicinal chemistry and drug design; protein engineering; target synthesis.

Green Chemistry:
Environmentally sustainable solvents; atom efficient and polymerisation catalysis.

Molecular Properties:
Atmospheric chemistry; electrochemistry; free radicals in solution; gas phase dynamics; interfaces; laser spectroscopy.

The laboratories are modern and spacious and are broadly divided into their central activities; biochemical, computational, instrumental, and synthetic.
