University of Leeds
Research in the School of Chemistry covers a wide range of areas and focuses on some of the most important aspects of modern life including climate change, health, manufacturing efficiency and lifestyle; inorganic research covers supramolecular chemistry and nanoscience, which involves the study of weak interactions between molecules and the assembly of small chemical components into larger structures; our biological inorganic chemistry research includes the discovery and development of new organometallic anti-cancer drugs; we also study prebiotic chemistry, to elucidate how a phosphate-based biochemistry could have evolved under the reducing atmosphere of the early Earth; there is a strong research effort in Catalysis by Lewis acidic metal centres in hydrolysis, phospho transfer and polymer synthesis reactions; organic chemistry research is primarily concerned with the development and application of new methods for making molecules and their applications, covering; process chemistry; medicinal chemistry; chemical biology; in the area of physical chemistry sections are interested in fundamental studies of elementary and complex chemical reactions and their applications in various areas such as planetary atmospheric chemistry, combustion, coherent control, and biological processes.
