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.
The Chemistry Higher Education Research, Practice and Scholarship (CHERPS) group has a wide range of expertise in chemical education. We put student co-creation at the heart of our projects and welcome collaborative links to drive forward innovations in pedagogy in chemistry. Our current initiatives span the diverse themes of laboratory teaching, outreach projects, graduate teaching assistant support and maths skills development.
