Course summary

Our research groups are involved in projects across a wide range of traditional subjects such as synthesis, catalysis and spectroscopy, This research ultimately leads to discoveries in new molecular magnets, plasmonics, battery technology, medical imaging agents and applications for 3D printing.

Overview

We provide a truly dynamic research environment. At any time we have about 40 academic staff, 120 research students and 40 research assistants and fellows, all working in close collaboration with industry in the UK and internationally.

We host a range of RCUK and industrially-funded research projects, and several research fellowships.

We are a member of ScotCHEM that brings together seven universities in Scotland. ScotCHEM is committed to excellence and to providing the highest quality postgraduate education and researcher experience. The umbrella structure of ScotCHEM encompasses West CHEM, a dynamic research environment which links the chemistry research schools of the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde.
