About Organic Chemistry
Masters degrees in Organic Chemistry provides advanced training in the composition of organic compounds and their reaction mechanisms. Specialisations include Biomolecular Chemistry, Bio-Organic Chemistry and Organometallic Chemistry.
Courses are typically taught MSc degrees, but MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, for example Chemistry, Biochemistry or Environmental Science.
You will advance your understanding of methods within molecular science, studying structures from macromolecules to cells. Training may include organic synthesis (the production of chemical compounds), spectroscopic (electromagnetic radiation) analysis, and retrosynthetic analysis.
Many courses offer the opportunity for you to refine research methodologies through industrial placement, in any number of tasks. For example, you may wish to learn about the design of pharmaceutical materials, or understand the treatment of cancer cells. You could also explore food and nutritional health, in either human medicine or veterinary science.
Roles within this field are therefore extremely varied. Traditional roles include laboratory positions within research institutes for the pharmaceutical, agricultural and medical industries. Opportunities also exist within commercial enterprises, from manufacturing and production, to consultation and strategic development.
