The Department of Chemistry offers research-intensive programs leading to the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. Research activities cover modern aspects of analytical, organic, inorganic, physical, and theoretical chemistry. In addition, several interdisciplinary fields are emphasized including bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry, biological chemistry, electrochemistry, spectroscopy and photochemistry, chemical structure, and interfacial and surface phenomena. In order to promote research, the department maintains close ties with other science and engineering departments, the National Research Council, and other government institutions on campus.
