About Green and Sustainable Chemistry at University of Nottingham

In our search for better medicines to improve healthcare in an ageing population, for safer agrochemicals to aid food production for a growing population, and for advanced materials for new technologies, it may come as no surprise to acknowledge that chemistry plays a dominant role. Without chemistry, the necessary scientific advances will simply not be made to meet these global challenges and to secure our future.

Chemistry is often viewed as demanding in its need for energy and natural resources. We have to ensure that chemistry is safe, efficient and, above all, sustainable – chemistry that is benign by design. Sustainability is an issue facing the entire global chemicals industry, our vision is to train a new generation of scientists to find innovative 'green' resource and energy efficient solutions that;

  • have the lowest possible environmental impact
  • demonstrate social responsibility
  • make a positive contribution to economic growth

This course builds upon our international track record in green chemistry, particularly in the fields of synthetic chemistry, catalysis, new technologies, materials science, process engineering and entrepeneurship. Course material covers all aspects of modern green and sustainable chemistry including feedstocks, energy, sustainable synthesis (including biocatalysis) and industrial process design. Formal lectures are complemented by a 60 credit project based in our world-leading research laboratories and designed to reinforce and apply many of the concepts delivered during lectures.

This MSc programme is highly interdisciplinary. It capitalises on strong established links between Chemistry, the Faculty of Engineering, and the Nottingham Business School to provide both breadth and depth in the scope of the MSc degree.
