The Department of Chemistry has grown steadily and substantially since its creation in the 1960s.

Recent years have seen wholesale investment in new buildings, the most recent to open being the Dorothy Hodgkin Building and the NMR Centre providing high quality Research Laboratories. The construction of state-of-the-art Teaching Laboratories is underway (2012).

The Department has research strengths across the major areas of chemistry with excellence in materials, protein crystallography, synthetic organic chemistry, spectroscopy, atmospheric, analytical and organometallic chemistry.

These research activities are associated with a thriving graduate school, and give context to much of the undergraduate teaching.
