In accord with its focus on research, the Chemistry Department possesses a wide range of modern, research grade instrumentation. Researchers, whether post-doctoral fellows, postgraduate students, or 4th year undergraduate students, have good access to these instruments.
Most of these facilities are also available to researchers from the wider university community, and some services are available to companies and other organisations. Some of the department's larger instrumentation is listed.
