Chemical Research (Green Chemistry)

This course explores modern approaches to chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances i.e. ways in which technologically important chemistry can be carried out without harm to the environment. It includes such concepts as waste minimisation and atom efficiency, solvent selection, and catalytic and energy efficient processes. It develops research, synthetic and analytical skills for careers in the chemical industry or further research leading to a PhD. The course has been tailored to meet the demands of graduating chemists who wish to further their training in chemical research or who wish to use this qualification as a route into a PhD programme. The course is designed to match the professional demand for highly-skilled personnel in industry and provides specific training in core areas of chemistry as well as specialised expertise in green chemistry.
