This field covers the implementation of both analytical instruments and processes used to separate, identify, and quantify chemical matter. It deduces chemical structures as well as their behaviour in differing conditions. It covers a variety of purposes including drug development, forensic analysis and toxicology. Research and development of formulation and processes is key to continually improve end products.
Types of analytical chemists:
- Drug formulation and development
- Chemical and forensic analysis
- Process development
These roles use a diverse range of methods to investigate the chemical nature of substances.
Responsibilities can vary across industries, for example in pharmaceuticals you'd be actively involved throughout drug development projects.
Tasks include analysing physical and chemical properties its formulation to determine the quality of the drug.
These roles require the use of high-performance liquid chromatography to separate compounds. Often utilised in laboratory testing for new chemical and pharmaceutical products.
Analytical Development Chemist:
Workers in these roles create and improve methods, processes and validation used in this area of chemistry.
Reviewing these processes to improve and solve problems to current or new formulation methods is key - this requires particularly strong attention to detail.
Analytical Assistant or Technician:
Often entry level roles and a good starting role for chemistry and STEM graduates focusing on supporting more senior members of analytical teams.
