Research in Oxford Chemistry focuses on fundamental science aimed at making significant and sustained long-term impact. We provide an environment that enables research by hiring, developing, and supporting talented researchers, many recognised as international leaders, across the spectrum of the chemical sciences.  Our students and staff work in excellent research facilities to deliver field-leading research crossing traditional boundaries and engaging strongly with other disciplines, both within Oxford and across a range of external sectors.

The impact of our research in the wider economy and society is manifest in our many industrial and clinical collaborations and successful start-ups.  Our eight research themes and business engagements showcase the breadth and depth of our research across the chemical sciences.
