Chemical and Physical Sciences has a proud tradition of excellence in research and teaching.

Flinders University physics is known for outstanding contributions to the fields of atomic, molecular, plasma and nuclear physics.

The high reputation enjoyed by its chemistry staff is based on leading research in molecular synthesis, molecular dynamics, physical organic chemistry and surface science.

Today's teaching and research programmes benefit from this tradition while responding to new developments and needs. Nanotechnology has become one of the foci within the chemistry and physics groups. The chemistry group also has strong links with Forensic Science, South Australia, and is developing leading research programs in forensic and analytical chemistry.
