Course content

The School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering is expanding rapidly and this is creating many new and exciting research opportunities with over £15m being invested to develop and expand the core research areas of catalysis, biological and medicinal chemistry, and materials.

RESEARCH STRENGTHS

  • CenTACat (Centre for the Theory and Application of Catalysis): supports adventurous, step-change research at the cutting edge of catalysis where chemistry meets other disciplines, especially engineering.
  • IMM (Innovative Molecular Materials): concentrates on the key themes of Molecular Information Handling and Functional Materials.
  • QUILL (Queen's University Ionic Liquid Laboratories): the largest multidisciplinary research group in the world centred on ionic liquid technology, whose work on ‘super solvents' (which do not form vapours and can be used as non-polluting alternatives to conventional solvents) was voted ‘Most Important British Innovation of the 21st Century' in 2013.
  • SynBIOC (Synthesis and Biological Organic Chemistry): developing an integrated synthetic and biological research programme to deliver compounds addressing the regulation of cellular functions.
