Our objective is to undertake the highest quality fundamental and applied research. We have a distinctive interdisciplinary structure founded on strong areas of inorganic, organic, physical and biological chemistry, which underpins our nine research themes.

Research in the Department of Chemistry is thriving with our research income averaging over £10 million per annum in recent years.

There are 51 members of staff; 160 graduates (mainly studying for PhD degrees); over 60 research fellows; and seven independent research fellows. The research is housed in a group of coherent laboratories, which have been modernised and extended.

EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account: The University of York has been awarded three years of funding to support our ongoing programme of engagement with external partners on impact-generating projects within engineering and physical sciences. Find out more and apply for funding.
