The Chemistry Clinic

The Chemistry Clinic is the new Knowledge Exchange (KE) programme in the Department of Pure & Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde.

It is a student-led service which provides opportunities for SMEs and larger companies to access chemistry facilities or consultancy services, for large or small projects, as required.


Companies often have small projects on which they would like scientific advice, or they may want their current processes and materials assessed or developed - the Chemistry Clinic can help. The Chemistry Clinic offers expert advice and access to specialist facilities and instrumentation.


The chemistry assistance can be provided from one particular section of the department, or it could also be multidisciplinary from within the department or other areas of the University depending on the needs of the project.
