About us

Extraordinary chemistry...

As a prestigious Russell Group institution, the University of Liverpool is one of the most exciting places in the UK to study or research Chemistry.

Our Chemistry Department is internationally known for its research in fields such as materials chemistry, medicinal chemistry, surface chemistry and nanosciences.

This is a place where academic and industrial researchers work side by side, sharing knowledge in highly advanced research labs.

This model of working with industry has been particularly successful, so much so that we have now developed a £65million Materials Innovation Factory in partnership with Unilever; a state of the art facility co-locating up to 250 researchers from academia and industry with shared access to a suite of cutting edge materials chemistry equipment.

Our place in the table

Our research was highly rated in the most recent 2014 Research Excellence Framework (1st in the UK for 4* and 3* research [world leading and internationally excellent]) - and it feeds straight into our teaching.

Study with us and you will be involved in genuine frontier science projects and with our £28m Central Teaching Hub there is no better place to learn.

Ranked fifth in the prestigious Russell Group by the 2018 Guardian league table, this is one of the most exciting places to study or research Chemistry.

GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca and Johnson Matthey are just some of the companies involved in our research and teaching.

Call it the perfect chemistry!
