Organization profile

Profile Information

The Department of Chemical Sciences has hosted vibrant research in chemistry since the nineteenth century and today boasts a diverse, high quality research environment with cutting edge facilities.

Areas of strength include synthetic organic chemistry, physical organic chemistry, carbohydrates, proteins and enzyme chemistry, organometallic and supramolecular chemistry, heterogeneous catalysis and adsorption, thermal methods of analysis and synthesis, and materials chemistry. Many other areas arise from collaboration with biologists, pharmacists, pharmacologists, physicists and forensic scientists.

Fingerprint The fingerprint is based on mining the text of the scientific documents related to the associated persons. Based on that an index of weighted terms is created, which defines the key subjects of research unit
