The Universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews have formed EaStCHEM, the leading Chemistry research school in Scotland, and the largest in the UK.

The Schools of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh and the University of St Andrews have an international research reputation across the broad range of activities:

  • The Chemistry/Biology Interface area
  • Chemical Physics
  • Molecular synthesis
  • Materials Chemistry

Many academics are involved in more than one research area and this breadth of activity is also indicated in our research interactions with other disciplines such as Physics, Biology, Materials Science, Geosciences and Engineering.

Our researchers are involved in many areas with application to business, including Nanotechnology, catalysis, carbon capture and utilisation, and Life Sciences.
