Chemistry (Research) | Doctorate / PhD | Science | On Campus | 3 years | Cardiff University | United Kingdom
Our research is grouped into five distinct cognate themes: biological chemistry, catalysis and interfacial science, materials and energy, molecular synthesis and spectroscopy and dynamics.
The research carried out within the School of Chemistry is diverse and encompasses both fundamental and applied themes. Available research topics closely mirror the particular research interests of individual staff members, which fall broadly into biological and organic, inorganic, physical, and theoretical and computational chemistries.
The School has undergone an extensive revitalisation in the last few years and occupies newly refurbished laboratories with excellent facilities for research and teaching
Chemistry continues to attract an expanding team of researchers, as well as maintaining an extensive network of industrial contacts
Strong interdisciplinary collaborations support projects across traditional subject divisions; postgraduates interact across these groups
New facilities for synthetic and catalytic chemistry, including an advanced pressure reaction suite for catalyst development and investigation and the opening of the laboratories of the new EPSRC-funded Physical Organic Chemistry Centre
Extensive collaborations internationally; a number of research programmes allow placements abroad, including in Europe and America.
