MRes in Green Chemistry, Energy and the Environment


Course Description

Chemistry plays a pivotal role in determining the quality of modern life.

The chemicals industry and other related industries supply us with a huge variety of essential products, from plastics to pharmaceuticals.

However, these industries have the potential to seriously damage our environment.

This has resulted in a growing demand from society for a reduced reliance on fossil fuels and for greener manufacturing processes.

There is also a need for future innovations to be built on more sustainable foundations.

Green chemistry therefore serves to promote the design and efficient use of environmentally benign chemicals and chemical processes.

This course is designed to introduce you to all aspects of sustainable chemical practices, with nine months dedicated to a research project in a green chemistry area.

Graduates of this course can expect to have all the necessary skills and experience to apply green chemical technologies in either commercial or academic laboratories, the research project in particular equipping them admirably for PhD studies.
