Chemistry Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

illustrative chemistry imagery for Chemistry Research and Enterprise GroupChemists at the University of Brighton engage with the ‘classical’ areas of organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry though much of their work also has a biological or medicinal angle. Through these themes their research interests are aligned with priority areas at university, national and international levels.

Chemistry research within the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences is located in Huxley Building laboratories. The Chemistry Research and Enterprise Group encompasses a diverse range of expertise in which chemical synthesis is the core theme. Working in a multidisciplinary School allows chemistry researchers to interact with experts in the biological and pharmaceutical sciences to facilitate research at the chemistry/biology interface.

Current interdisciplinary research includes analysis of DNA from archaeological sites by mass spectrometry, analysis of composition-based lipid membrane curvature, the development of molecules with anti-ageing potential, drug-releasing polymers and toxin-removing devices for haemodialysis. Other areas of research involve single molecule magnets, carbon capture through coordination chemistry, disclosing agents for organophosphate nerve agents, computational chemistry, electrochemical sensor and biosensor fabrication, 3D microfabrication and supramolecular chemistry.
