Course content

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. Students 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. Students will have the opportunity to engage with the team on projects that have real-world impact using fundamental chemistry research.

Our research focus is on the synthesis, characterisation, and application of functional materials, from the development of novel synthetic methods to transform small molecules to the systematic design and development of materials beyond the molecule that create nano- and micro sized assemblies for a wide-range of applications. These studies are complimented with innovative method development in the analysis and simulation of materials.
