The University has initiated a £20 million phased redevelopment of the Department of Chemistry. Modern new facilities will be provided for both research and undergraduate laboratories.
The first stage of this exciting development began with the £6.5 million E block, the final phase of the D block research building.
We have now announced the splendid news that we are building a brand new two storey F block to house undergraduate teaching and Green Chemistry to replace C block as our vision for Chemistry at York comes to fruition.
C block was demolished in September 2012. Work on the site began at the start of January 2013 and the new F block building is expected to be completed by December 2013.
Within the new F block, the ground floor teaching laboratories will include a spacious wet laboratory with 80 energy-efficient two-person fumehoods, a large instrument room containing an extensive range of modern analytical equipment for chemical analysis, a dedicated NMR laboratory and a computational lab housing 24 pcs.
Vision for Chemistry F Block - undergraduate teaching and Green Chemistry
In this development, a new two-storey building will be constructed.
On the ground floor, modern teaching laboratories will provide outstanding professional-standard training facilities for the scientists of tomorrow.
On the upper floor, the building will house our Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence, a world leading research centre which aims to promote the development and implementation of green and sustainable chemistry and related technologies into new products and processes.
