Chemistry research is thriving at Swansea University. Spanning a wide range of fields, it is set to multiply at a rapid pace over the next three years. Our Chemistry research groups are currently focused on four themes:

  • Energy
  • Health 
  • New and advanced molecules and materials
  • Water and the environment

These initiatives transcend traditional discipline boundaries and integrate core areas of organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistries while intersecting with engineering, medicine, and other scientific disciplines.

The new Chemistry department at Swansea has a purpose-built, state-of-the-art Chemistry Hub containing modern teaching laboratories, research space and access to a diverse line of research infrastructures.

High-quality, high-impact chemistry research is already taking place in world-class centres at Swansea.

These include:

  • The Centre for NanoHealth
  • The Institute of Mass Spectrometry
  • The Institute of Life Sciences 
  • The Energy Safety Research Institute
  • Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre
  • The Centre for Water Advanced Technologies and Environmental Research
  • The Materials Research Centre

Department of Chemistry

Chemistry research at Swansea University is pioneering multidisciplinary technology development in key themes of energy and environment; health; new and advanced molecules and polymers; nanotechnologies and advanced materials. These research initiatives transcend the traditional discipline boundaries, integrate the core areas of inorganic, organic, physical and analytical chemistries and intersect with other scientific disciplines, medicine and engineering. Our international research spans everything from surface science using molecular beams and spectroscopic techniques, to novel nanoparticle drug delivery systems to innovative plastic recycling techniques, polymer synthesis, energy storage, semiconductor devices and novel inorganic materials for optoelectronics and. We collaborate closely with industry to translate our research into real-world applications and commercialisation.

Chemistry postgraduate study

The Chemistry Department, based at Singleton Park Campus, has excellent, purpose-built laboratories ideal for pursuing further research in Chemistry. Integration between the department and the College of Engineering, the Medical School and other departments in the College of Science provides an environment of research excellence. This allows students and staff to invent, innovate and develop products in a way that impacts on current global challenges. 

Research interests include Energy, Health, New and Advanced Molecules and Materials; and Water and the Environment. 

The Chemistry Department is always keen to attract high-quality postgraduate students to join our research community. As a Chemistry research student, you will be guided by internationally leading researchers and will carry out a large individual research project.

How you're supervised on the Chemistry research programme

Your work will be supported by inspirational staff including Professor Simon Bott, recipient of eight awards for his instructional teaching at the University of Houston.
