Research Areas

Chemistry and Chemical Engineering are of vital importance in the modern world, and the research undertaken in our Institute spans fundamental studies in theoretical chemistry and biochemistry to applications in devices and engineering. Fundamental research in our Institute led to the discovery of dye sensitized solar cells and drugs and diagnostics developed within our Institute are now in widespread use. We continue to take a leading role in all aspects of chemistry including research at the interface of biology and physics as well as in sustainability and nanoscience. The links on this page should help to provide a more detailed picture of our Institute and reveal that it is exciting environment in which to conduct research in the chemical sciences and engineering.
