School of Chemistry Instrumentation

The School of Chemistry prides itself with state-of-the-art technologies used towards the execution of international standard research and undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. While our students gain in-depth knowledge of analytical methods in their lectures, they get invaluable hands-on experience during their laboratory practical sessions during thier four year programmes.

The analytical equipment in the School of Chemistry is used regularly by industrial partners. New enquiries from industry are welcome.

The equipment listed is also available for use by other Universities units (conditions apply).
