The Department of Chemistry is one of the largest departments in the University. Our international reputation for research is shown in the Research Excellence Framework 2014, which rated 98% of our research as world-class or internationally excellent.
Much of our research has been featured on the front covers of top international research journals. Our four interdisciplinary research clusters include excellence in all of the familiar branches of chemistry but organised in a way which suits our particular strengths, providing the foundations for a substantial and varied portfolio of research grants, an interface with industry, and collaborations with other departments in the university.
