The Department of Chemistry has a rich history of excellent research and inspirational teaching: there are four Nobel Prize winners who have either worked or studied in the department. Today, researchers are working on a diverse set of challenges, from antimicrobial resistance and environmental sustainability, to new technological solutions for industry.
Research spans chemical biology, light-matter interactions and theory, polymers, materials and nanoscience, and supramolecular chemistry and catalysis. This provides the basis for a substantial and varied portfolio of research grants, collaborations with industry, and research institution partnerships.
We are currently home to more than 500 undergraduate students and almost 150 postgraduate students, as well as students based in China who we teach through our collaboration with Nanjing Tech University. They are supported by more than 40 academic staff, plus teaching staff, who are committed to helping our students understand complex chemical theories, and how to apply them in the lab.
Our undergraduate courses are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, so that our students graduate with all the skills they need for a career in science, and we run three masters courses across chemistry and polymer science.
We are also committed to inspiring the next generation of science students through a regular programme of activities for local schoolchildren in the Kroto Schools Laboratory.
