Chemistry research

Each of our themes has a team of research-active staff, each at the forefront of research in their respective fields.

Our interests span many areas of both fundamental and technological interest. We share common ground in research excellence and an inclusive and collaborative spirit. We harbour a dedication to passing on our knowledge to a new generation of researchers.

研究 Impact of all forms is an integral part of our research activity. We aim to mix the very best in chemical research with industrial partnerships to address real-world problems and generate solutions to Grand Challenges.

Chemistry-related research also takes place in other departments across the university, including work in the Lancaster Environment Centre, Engineering and Physics departments. This research covers areas such as Condensed matter, Environmental Science or Nuclear chemistry.

研究 groups

  • Chemical Synthesis

    Synthesis underlies all aspects of chemistry; the design, creation and study of molecules and materials are at the heart of research activity across all areas of chemistry.

  • Chemical Theory and Computation

    The interrelated fields of Chemical Theory and Chemical Computation form the basis of the CTC research theme in Chemistry at Lancaster.

  • Physical and Analytical Chemistry

    Characterisation and measurement of the properties of atoms, molecules, solids, materials and biological systems are at the heart of our physical and analytical chemistry (PAC) research here at Lancaster.

研究 facilities


In recent years, Lancaster University has played host to a variety of prominent conferences.
