Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group

RSC Spectroscopy & Dynamics

The Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group (SDG) is one of the Royal Society of Chemistry's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.


To promote the interests of molecular spectroscopists, photochemists and reaction dynamicists, especially those involved in high resolution studies (energy, spatial and/or time) of contemporary problems in chemical physics. 


  • Organising and sponsoring topical meetings. 
  • Circulating relevant information. 
  • Ensuring the interests of its members are adequately represented in the activities of the RSC and other bodies.  
  • The Group offers one main residential meeting and one or more one-day meetings each year: young scientists are encouraged to give presentations at these meetings.    


  • An annual newsletter.  
  • Bursaries for attendance at Group meetings.   
  • As a constituent group of the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS), the SDG is represented at their meetings and individual members of the Group are automatically members of the ABS.
