Chemistry is the central molecular science - it is about everything that has to do with molecules: making them, using their properties to engineer useful things, studying fundamental physics with molecules, and using their physical properties to achieve new effects.
Our staff and students work on projects strongly tied to other disciplines in areas including plasmonics, molecular magnets, battery technology, 3D printing and malaria. Our research is split into six main research groups, detailed below.
