Research in the School of Chemistry
The School Chemistry has an active research program which spans all sub-disciplines of Chemistry. There are a great many inter-departmental and international research programmes currently underway.
Research topics have been grouped into several main sections (below), however there is a great deal of overlap between these sections.
Research income is earned from national, international and commercial sources and the School holds grants in a number of research programmes funded by the European community. Several groups are involved in networks of European laboratories, often as co-ordinators. The College fosters an interdisciplinary approach to research and members of the Department have strong links with colleagues in the physical, technological and biological sciences throughout the College.
ASIN - Architecture and Synthesis of Integrated Nanostructures
Prof. Georg Duesberg
We utilise a Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) processes to synthesize carbon nanostructures with high precision and accuracy, using a dedicated CVD furnaces.......More information
Bioinspired Inorganic Chemistry Group
Prof. Aidan McDonald
The Bioinspired Inorganic Chemistry Group design and synthesise model complexes that mimic metalloprotein active sites. We then investigate the reactivity of these model complexes in order to: a) better understand metalloproteins; b) design novel catalysts; and c) develop treatments for adverse metalloprotein chemistry.More information
