Chemistry is a fundamental science that underpins a vast array of topics. At Lincoln, the School of Chemistry is focused on advancing the chemical sciences to address real-world problems in society and industry.
Research students in Chemistry can benefit from an interdisciplinary environment and may have the opportunity to work with colleagues from across the University’s College of Science, national and international academic collaborators, and an array of industry partners. You will have full access to a range of facilities including high-throughput preparative methods, bespoke molecular and nanomaterials laboratories, and analytical and structural instrumentation.
The chemistry team is currently involved in studies including collaborative projects with the pharmaceutical, environmental, fine chemicals and instrumentation sectors. You will have the opportunity to engage with the team on projects that have real-world impact using fundamental chemistry research.
Ongoing research projects in the School include novel molecular imprinted polymers for precious metal recovery, design of organic crystals for nanoelectronic applications, nanometals for spectroscopic enhancement, materials degradation and preservation of precious artefacts, and pharmaceutical materials discovery. The bespoke design of our postgraduate programmes aims to address real-world challenges using fundamental chemistry research. The environment for chemical research at the University of Lincoln recently benefited from a £6.8m grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England Catalyst Fund. Systematic investment includes specialist instrumentation in the University’s Analytical Centre and specialist facilities for molecular synthesis, nano and materials synthesis and crystal engineering that uses automated synthesis tools. Researchers in the School of Chemistry are working to develop new methods to rapidly profile ‘legal high’ preparations with novel chromatographic methods. Other projects include work to design new materials for remediation of precious and toxic metals from industrial waste.
