Research - Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry offers a wide variety of research areas including theoretical chemistry, environmental and analytical chemistry, organic chemistry and structural chemistry.
Research groups at IKJ
Environmental and Analytical Chemistry
We study the behaviour of chemical compounds in nature - air, water, soil and food chains. Much of this work is related to pollution from local sources - further distributed globally.
Organic chemistry is the study of the structure, properties, and reactions of organic compounds and organic materials. Organic compounds form the basis of all earthly life, and they are used in a range of products such as fuels, plastics, pharmaceuticals, food, explosive materials, and paints
A theoretical chemist is a person who wants to understand the structure, movement and reactions of molecules. In theoretical chemistry, we want to find equations and quantitative measures for what we observe.
