Characterisation and Analytics

The Characterisation and Analytics research group specialises in research-led analytical problem-solving by using the latest instruments to examine and analyse chemical data.

Part of Chemistry


Our research focuses on using methods to identify, isolate or quantify chemicals and materials. We also investigate what characterises their physical properties.

Using the latest instruments and facilities, which are available to researchers across the University, we examine both organic and inorganic chemicals.

Our techniques include:

  • powder and materials X-ray diffraction
  • nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy
  • mass spectrometry and chromatography-mass spectrometry

Projects and publications

Our people

The ability to elucidate complex atomic-scale structures through their interactions with X-rays is truly incredible.
