The School of Chemistry is a vibrant centre of research in chemistry. We have an international reputation in a wide range of fields from catalysis to anticancer drug design and molecular photonics to nanotechnology.
Research in the School of Chemistry is organised into three groups:
Synthesis, Structure and Spectroscopy: The work undertaken in this central research area covers a wide range of chemistry, from fundamental studies of structure, bonding and reactivity to the design of new molecules and materials. Material applications are diverse, ranging from catalysis to medical diagnostics and solar energy conversion.
Nanoscience and Materials: The major interests of our academic staff are: the design and synthesis of low-dimensional systems, eg films, wires and particles; fundamental study of low-dimensional chemical and physical properties; addressing scientific problems associated with developing low-dimensional systems for application
Biological and Medicinal: Our research focuses on applying synthesis to the solution of problems in biology and medicine. The major research interests of our academics are: cancer therapeutics; anti-infective chemotherapy; radiochemistry
The group works with life scientists and clinicians in the Northern Institute for Cancer Research and the NHS.
