Chemical Characterisation Facility

We provide a comprehensive material and chemical characterisation service. We work with the commercial sector and internal and external research institutions.​

Dynamic Reaction Monitoring Facility (DReaM)

Discover the equipment housed by the DReaM Facility, some of the research undertaken by our users, and how you can use the DReaM Facility to monitor liquid-phase chemical reactions in real-time.

About the DReaM Facility

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) can be thought of as asking nuclei questions about their local environment and then listening to the response. Find out about the applications of NMR and how you can use our facility.

Mass Spectrometry

Mass Spectrometry is a sensitive technique used to identify and quantify compounds based on their mass, charge, structure and elemental composition. Find out about using our Mass Spectrometry service.

Chromatography and other techniques

We provide several types of chromatography that separate compounds based on their size, charge and other physiochemical interactions of compounds with mobile phases and stationary phases.

About us

The Chemical Characterisation Facility combines cutting-edge analytical equipment with extensive in-house expertise to provide a comprehensive material and chemical characterisation service.

The Chemical Characterisation Facility is part of the Research Infrastructure and Facilities department.
