Our research activities are organised in six research groupings.
The group's research aims to advance the molecular understanding of biology, and to harness biology for the advancement of chemistry.
The group is internationally recognised for its work in the field, where it also has a significant presence in nanoscience and surface electrochemistry.
Research interests of the group include the design, synthesis and application of innovative ligand systems, new organometallic and coordination complexes, in a wide range of fields.
The group's work is focused on the development of novel synthetic methods and their application, typically in natural products or biologically active compounds of pharmaceutical or agrochemical significance.
The group investigates fundamental properties of materials, develops experimental techniques, and explores new practical applications.
The group's research spans a wide range of activities, in theory, computational methods, computer implementation and application to a wide variety of chemical problems.
There are many active areas of research collaboration between these research groups, as well as active collaborations between members of the School of Chemistry and other Schools in Cardiff (particularly Pharmacy, Biosciences, Physics, Medicine and Engineering). There are also several collaborative research initiatives involving other universities in the UK and abroad, and with industrial companies. Details of the research interests of each individual member of staff may be found by linking to his or her academic profile page.
