Facilities and equipment

Over recent years the Lennard-Jones Laboratories have undergone extensive refurbishment and upgrades in response to our increasing research demands and increasing student numbers with over 250 chemistry undergraduates using our facilities. For the future construction has already started on our new exciting Central Science Laboratory which is an integral part of the Lennard-Jones which will open in September 2019 and double our teaching capacity.  Alongside this the rest of the Lennard-Jones will be refurbished including research laboratories, the lecture theatre, break out spaces and a new frontage, all due for completion in 2020.

Keele Chemistry's philosophy is that instrumentation is used for both research and teaching, meaning that our undergraduates have the opportunity to be trained on the most up-to-date equipment. We have have invested over £2M in new instruments over the past 5 years and we have a renewal programme which ensures that our equipment is kept up to date and to industry standards.
