We are delighted to have been named the number 1 Chemistry department in Scotland and number 3 in the UK in the latest Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide! This is testament to the excellent teaching, entry standards, student experience and ground breaking research we strive to deliver.
The department is thrilled to announce that two of our academic staff, Professor Eva Hevia and Professor Karen Faulds have been elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and can now add FRSE to their list of awards.
Angela has been a practising forensic scientist for over 40 years and is known equally for setting up and running full scale forensic laboratories (including LGC Forensics - the largest forensic provider in the UK).
Our congratulations go to Dr Matthew Baker who has been awarded the RSC's Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize 2017 for his novel analytical methodologies for the detection and characterisation of molecules within complex matrices and their application towards human health and security.
Well done Matt!
Our congratulations go to Dr Eva Hevia, who has been awarded the RSC Corday Morgan Prize for her research on polar organometallic chemistry and, in particular, for her important contributions towards air - and moisture-tolerant synthesis.
Well done Dr Hevia
We are delighted to report that Professor Duncan Graham has recently been awarded the 2017 FACSS Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy. He will officially receive the award at SCIX 2017 in Reno, Nevada.
