Chemistry Facilities

A wide range of Chemistry facilities and services are available at the School of Natural and Environmental Sciences.

You will benefit from our £2.1m research laboratories and £1.9m synthetic chemistry teaching laboratories

Other facilities include:

  • physical chemistry laboratory
  • mechanical and electronic workshops, staffed by highly trained technicians
  • facilities for the synthesis and characterisation of novel materials 
  • extensive computational resources for molecular modelling and dynamics
  • a centralised NMR facility which includes 200, 300 and 500 MHz spectrometers

You will also have access to the Chemical Analytical Services Unit. Which offers elemental analysis of compounds; GC-MS and mass spectrometer with EI, FAB, CI; and electrospray ionisation capabilities.

We also have exceptional X-ray crystallographic facilities, including a CCD area detector diffractometer and low-temperature facilities, allowing rapid determination of the structure of crystalline compounds.

In addition, individual research groups are well-equipped with modern spectroscopic techniques for both kinetic and analytical functions.
