- Learn from the experts on our interdisciplinary programme
Explore green and sustainable chemistry
Chemistry plays a key role in our search for better medicines to improve healthcare in an ageing population, for safer agrochemicals to aid food production for a growing population, and for advanced materials for new technologies. Our objective is to ensure that chemistry is sustainable.
Be part of a new generation of scientists being trained to find innovative sustainable resource and energy-efficient solutions that have low environmental impact, demonstrate social responsibility and make a positive contribution to economic growth.
Discover many aspects of modern sustainable chemistry including:
- sustainable synthesis (including biocatalysis)
- industrial process design
You will develop an excellent knowledge of contemporary methods of synthesis, analysis and process design optimised for both energy and reaction mass efficiency.
Equip yourself with the tools to critically evaluate comparable reaction pathways and make decisions in the design of efficient chemical processes key to the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and other chemical-using industries.
Learn from the experts in this interdisciplinary programme which capitalises on strong established links between the School of Chemistry, the Faculty of Engineering, and the Nottingham Business School.
Undertake original research
A highlight of the course is a two-month, 60-credit summer research project in original experimental work.
You will be supervised by one or more academic staff members and will join an active research group.
