Dr Janet Scott, who is leading a transatlantic project to tackle effective recycling of polymers, shares her passion for science with us.
Department of Chemistry research
Our research spans from fundamental chemistry to applications in catalysis, materials, healthcare and sustainable chemical technologies.
Our researchers are developing new, more sustainable materials that could make solar power a more viable technology worldwide.
Our scientists have developed a medical dressing that 'lights up' when a burn is infected.
Reader in Chemistry, Matthew Jones, talks about finding a new catalytic route from ethanol to butadiene.
Characterising complex chemical mixtures and selective molecule detection.
Researching fundamental properties of molecules and materials.
Investigating and improving healthcare challenges.
Exploring the boundaries between the different states of matter.
Designing and producing novel materials.
Studying all aspects of chemical reactions.
We combine cutting-edge analytical equipment with extensive in-house expertise to provide a comprehensive material and chemical characterisation service.
We develop and design innovative materials with unique properties to improve technological, structural and manufacturing products and processes.
We provide access and training on specialist equipment for micro-scale and nano-scale fabrication for University of Bath researchers and external organisations.
We support and enrich the experience of our doctoral researchers and play a key role in developing policy and strategy relevant to doctoral study.
Doctoral training programme which places fundamental concepts of sustainability at the core of research, training and outreach in applied chemical sciences.
