About

The Analytical Chemistry programme of the University of Aberdeen is designed to enhance the skills of Chemistry graduates, focusing on environmental and life sciences.

Overview

At a Glance

The Analytical Chemistry programme of the University of Aberdeen will build on your undergraduate Chemistry experience and develop specialist skills applicable to analytical, bioanalytical and environmental topics.

This programme focuses on specialisation in advanced modern analytical methodology. The range of industries or institutes where these skills are asked for includes the pharmaceutical industry, environmental institutions, research institutes and also the oil & gas industry.

NMR and elemental and molecular mass spectrometry allows the identification and quantification of small biomolecules in complex mixtures at trace level. Trace analysis of toxic elements such as arsenic or mercury is not only needed for the determination of environmental contamination, but also applies to food security, as our impact study on Arsenic in rice impressively shows (ranked 1st in Scotland at 2014 REF) .

The University has a historic and central presence within Aberdeen, the town where modern chromatography was invented (Synge, Nobel prize 1952), and where Frederick Soddy published the discovery of a new element, protactinium (Nobel Prize 1921).

Careers

Many graduates will find careers working in a pharmaceutical company or will work for an environmental agency as, or with, Analytical Chemists. This course gives strong fundamentals of techniques which are widely used in life sciences and in environmental monitoring in industry and academia and gives an appreciation of emerging new analytical techniques which will be used in those fields in the future. This opens up careers in lab-based studies which are not centred around the traditional chemical science laboratories.
