Research themes

The School of Chemistry maintains a traditional managerial structure with three sections, namely Inorganic & Materials, Organic & Biological, and Physical & Theoretical, but the School’s research profile is defined according to nine themes, each with a critical mass of researchers. Further information on the School's research profile can be found at Explore Bristol Research.

Researchers in the School of Chemistry are also engaged in a number of collaborative centres and research institutes, with broader engagement from researchers across the Science Faculty and the University. Further details of these centres are found below.
