RMIT's modern, purpose-built and well-equipped facilities, including analytical instruments, will support your research.
Under expert supervision, you will join researchers already active in:
- analytical chemistry (metabolomics, natural products extraction and identification), separation science (focus on gas and liquid chromatography), flow injection analysis and mass spectrometry)
- environmental analysis (air, soil and water quality, environmental contamination, biosolids, environmental toxicology)
- occupational health and safety (open systems research, management and governance, risk management)
- physical and materials chemistry (organic and inorganic synthesis, colloidal chemistry, functional surfaces, micro- and nano-technologies, nano-biotechnology, electrochemistry, heterogeneous catalysis, photocatalysis).
- This masters degree may be undertaken in a project or thesis mode.
- RMIT's primary research activities are conducted within the Centre for Advanced Materials and Industrial Chemistry.
The School of Science's researchers have a demonstrated record of success in collaborations, funding and research publications.
You will work with researchers who are past and present winners of ARC Future Fellowships and DECRA’s, the AGR Matthey Gold medal for outstanding contribution in the field of applied gold chemistry, the RK Murphy Medal for Industrial Chemistry, the Silver Jubilee Medal of the Chromatographic Society, London, the CLRI Padmabhushan Dr Y Nayudamma Chemcon Distinguished Speaker Award (awarded by the Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers).
The majority of research staff are Members and Fellows of professional societies including: the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), UK, and the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI).
In the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia assessments we were ranked at ‘well above world standard’ for physical chemistry and ‘above world standard’ for analytical chemistry.
