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.
