The lab, located in the Joseph Priestley Building at Queen Mary’s Mile End campus, recently benefitted from a £5.2 million investment. This investment into both the labs and the building infrastructure has added an additional 30 fume cupboards, a new teaching zone and benching for modern equipment. The design itself is similar to commercial laboratories, which will prepare students for the next stage of their careers.
The laboratory will also be used for BSc, MSci and MSc student projects, expanding the range of experimental training delivered to students and there are plans to put on summer schools for year 11 and 12 students, including lectures, laboratory sessions and preparation for university.
In the most recent REF, REF 2014, QMUL Chemistry was ranked equal 6th in for outputs. Our research strengths in chemistry are: materials chemistry, synthesis and catalysis and theoretical and computational chemistry.
