Physical and Analytical Chemistry

Physical and Analytical Chemistry

Characterisation and measurement of the properties of atoms, molecules, solids, materials and biological systems are at the heart of the physical and analytical chemistry (PAC) research here at Lancaster.

The team within the PAC research group have a diverse but complementary background across measurement science. The use of solid state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) techniques, both in materials and in biological systems, is a key strength. Our expertise also extends to more general measurement science, in particular using electrochemical techniques, and the study of photovoltaic materials and light harvesting.

The facilities available to support our research are expanding rapidly. As part of Chemistry at Lancaster’s major building redevelopment programme, we have access to a larger number of custom-designed laboratories and instruments for research.

Our research is carried out with a wide range of academic and industrial collaborators.
