School of Chemistry
The School of Chemistry at Nottingham has a reputation for excellence in both teaching and research. The School gained 95% student satisfaction in the most recent The National Student Survey (NSS) and the results in the 2008 RAE Exercise have propelled Chemistry at Nottingham into second place in the national rankings between Cambridge and Oxford. RAE2008 judged 85% of our research activity to be 'internationally excellent' or 'world leading'.
Welcome to the School of Chemistry
The Centre for Sustainable Chemistry
The School of Chemistry is committed to focusing its world class research expertise on the major challenges that affect us all – healthcare, energy and sustainability. As part of this commitment we have recently established a Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Chemistry.
EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry
Professor Chris Moody in the School of Chemistry will lead a new EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Chemistry. The Centre, based in the new Carbon Neutral Laboratory (CNL), will train new generations of PhD graduates working at the interfaces of chemistry, engineering, biosciences and business. The Centre will focus on world-leading research activity in sustainable chemistry that will aim for the highest 'clean and green' standards to minimise environmental impact and ensure that the new chemistry developed is both energy and resource efficient, and sustainable.
