Research

Research activities in the School of Chemistry focus on synthesis, characterisation and application of functional materials: from the development of novel synthetic methods to transform small molecules, to the systematic design and development of materials beyond the molecule that create nano- and microsized assemblies for a wide-range of applications. These studies are complimented with innovative method development in the analysis and simulation of materials.

The School of Chemistry places a strong focus on cross-disciplinary research and collaboration between groups, with the aim of consistently pursuing and achieving groundbreaking discoveries across the fields of science. The School is currently collaborating with Lincoln Institute of Agri-Food Technology, Lincoln Institute for Health, National Centre for Food Manufacturing, as well as the Schools of Pharmacy, Life Sciences, Engineering and Mathematics and Physics. In addition, the School has strong international research links.
