School of Chemistry at Lincoln

The School of Chemistry at Lincoln opened in April 2014 as the first new School in Chemistry in the UK to be established ab initio for decades and admitted its first cohort of undergraduate students in September of that year. We have developed a curriculum that is modern, research-informed and grounded in the fundamentals of chemistry but also flavoured with a distinctive context of promotion of concepts in professional practice throughout its programmes.

Research activities in the School of Chemistry focuses on synthesis, characterization and application of functional materials – from the development of novel synthetic methods to transform small molecules to the systematic design and development of materials beyond the molecule that create nano- and microsized assemblies for a wide-range of applications. These studies are complimented with innovative method development in the analysis and simulation of materials.
