Characterising complex chemical mixtures and selective molecule detection.
Department of Chemistry research
Our research spans from fundamental chemistry to applications in catalysis, materials, healthcare and sustainable chemical technologies.
Researchers have developed a new phosphorescent material from lignin, a major component of wood.
Funding will lead to creation of ‘early warning system’ tracking the spread of the virus in wastewater in Lagos and Cape Town
Our researchers are developing new, more sustainable materials that could make solar power a more viable technology worldwide.
A new system for delivering vaccines to children in low-income nations has taken a vital step forward, thanks to groundbreaking work at the University of Bath
Professor of Chemistry, Matthew Jones, talks about finding a new catalytic route from ethanol to butadiene.
Attaching electrochemical tags to DNA could allow GPs to diagnose and treat patients in just one visit.
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.
Doctoral training programme which places fundamental concepts of sustainability at the core of research, training and outreach in applied chemical sciences.
This CDT trains postgraduate researchers in heterogeneous, homogeneous catalysis and reaction engineering to equip them to advance the UK's catalysis sector.
We support and enrich the experience of our doctoral researchers and play a key role in developing policy and strategy relevant to doctoral study.
