Environmental Chemistry

Our in depth strength in specific research disciplines is the foundation for “connected research” that integrates the natural and social sciences across disciplines.

Our research aims to improve the fundamental understanding of how chemicals behave in the environment, whether they are natural or man-made, essential nutrients or potential pollutants. We work closely with policy makers to help them assess the risks and benefits of environmental chemicals, and with industry, helping them to develop chemicals that achieve their purpose without causing harm to the environment or humans.
