Department of Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of matter and the chemical reactions that matter undergoes; it involves the creation of molecules and materials, and investigation of their structures, properties, and reactivity. Chemistry is often called the central science because knowledge of chemistry connects other sciences to each other, such as physics, biology, geology, and environmental sciences.

The Department of Chemistry consists of 9 laboratories that are divided into three sub-disciplines: organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and inorganic & analytical chemistry. We have eighteen faculty members, and the number of undergraduate students admitted in each year is about fifty. Because of this small group learning, students and professors can keep a close relation to each other.

Education and researches in the Department of Chemistry focus on organic chemistry, physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and environmental geochemistry. The curriculum is designed to generate thoughtful graduates who can contribute to various societies with a background of chemistry. All the members of the faculty will welcome you.
