The Department has a number of specialist instruments and facilities, including: 2 x 400 MHz, 500 MHz and solid-state NMR spectrometers, single crystal and powder X-ray diffractometers, a high resolution inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer, sector field organic MS, GC-MS and linear ion trap LC-mass spectrometers, ion mobility spectrometers and gas and liquid chromatographs.

- Research
The Department typically has well over 50 research students and a dozen postdoctoral researchers. In addition there are usually around 50 MSc students in the department. Many students come to study from abroad, and there are research students and visitors from all over the world currently studying and carrying out research in the department.
The Department is very well equipped to carry out research spanning all the traditional branches of chemistry (analytical, environmental, inorganic, organic and physical) and which contributes to four active research themes (Energy, Environment, Security and Health).

- Career Prospects
90% of our graduates were in employment and/or further study six months after graduating. Graduates can expect to develop their careers in the pharmaceutical and food industry, analytical and environmental laboratories, public and regulatory utilities, industrial laboratories, or go on to study for a PhD.
