11. Kyoto University - Graduate School of Science - Faculty of Science - Division of Chemistry Chemistry, as the core investigative system of "Material Science," has played a central role in the development of this science which supports contemporary society, built around the hubs of a systematic understanding of the principles and laws governing the character of material, and the creation of newer and more expedient materials. The research objective of chemistry is all materials which exist as gases, liquids, and in a solid state, and ranges diversely from simple organic & inorganic compounds and metallic units to complex organism-related molecules.
The Division of Chemistry is comprised of 29 laboratories, 16 from the Department of Chemistry (Kitashirakawa Campus), 7 from the Institute for Chemical Research (Uji Campus), 1 from the Institute for Virus Research (Hospital Campus), 1 from the Institute for Reactor Research (Kumatori Campus), 1 from Research Center for Low Temperature and Materials (Yoshida Campus) and 3 laboratories headed by the adjunct faculty members of Kyoto University.
The field of research and education in the Division of Chemistry envelopes the diversity and multilayer characteristics which chemistry possesses, and is mainly classified into four areas: Theoretical & Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry of Materials, Organic Chemistry, and Chemical Biology. By integrating the study of these four areas, we are developing ultimately desired innovations in the fundamental fields such as the precise description of chemical reactions and the methodology to synthesize arbitrary molecules. Additionally, our objective in this Division is to enhance fundamental chemical concepts into a highly complex system including vital phenomena, and as a result foster graduate students who can accomplish such research.
12. McGill University - Department of Chemistry I invite you to explore our Website. To begin, you will learn about the long and impressive history of Chemistry at McGill. Building on the first McGill Ph.D. in Chemistry, awarded to Annie MacLeod in 1910, more than 1,500 Ph.D.s have been earned in the Department. Many benchmarks in Chemistry have McGill origins including Soddy's research on the transmutation of the elements, Belleau's discovery of the antiviral 3TC, and Ogilvie's development of the first 'gene machine'.
We have a very friendly Department with about 125 graduate students, 40 postdoctoral fellows, and 34 professors. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will have the opportunity of undertaking cutting-edge research. M.Sc. or Ph.D. degrees in a number of areas of Chemistry are available. Faculty members are active in areas of Materials, Chemical Synthesis, Bio-organic Chemistry, Biophysical Chemistry and Nanochemistry in addition to the disciplinary areas of Analytical, Physical, Inorganic and Organic chemistry.
Please take time to explore the research interests of our professors by examining their individual websites. Please also have a look at the work of the Office for Chemistry and Society. This unique venture strongly flavours the teaching and outreach efforts of the Department in the undergraduate environment.
McGill is an international university as reflected in the make-up of the Department, where faculty and students come from all parts of the world. In addition, Montreal is a fascinating city which delivers many exciting cultural advantages to make your stay at McGill a memorable one.

13. National University of Singapore - Department of Chemistry The Department of Chemistry is one of the pioneer departments in the university and traces its history to 1929 when Raffles College was established in Singapore. Today we are a large and dynamic Department comprising talented research faculty who are well-recognized in their fields of inquiry, teaching faculty who win university educator awards, and technical and administrative staff who garner university acclaim for their achievements
Our 63 research faculty members are engaged in research in the core areas of inorganic, organic, physical and analytical chemistry as well as in interdisciplinary research areas of chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, biophysics and materials science. Five faculty members hold joint appointments with other departments and many are members of interdisciplinary research institutes and centres.
14. Northwestern University - Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences - Department of Chemistry Established in 1884 and located on the shore of Lake Michigan in Evanston, Illinois, Northwestern University's Department of Chemistry is a center for global excellence in undergraduate and graduate education and research in chemistry. We have a long-standing commitment to collaborative research in the fundamentals of chemistry as well as exploring multidisciplinary connections in nanotechnology, energy sciences, catalysis, life processes, biological chemistry, material science, drug development, chemical and biological engineering, and environmental science. Our department has innovative faculty and outstanding students. We currently have 29 world-renowned, 100% research active chemistry faculty including eight members of the National Academy of Sciences and one Knight-Bachelor. READ MORE
15. Peking University - College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering grows based on the former College of Chemistry of Peking University. College of Chemistry, the first chemistry department in China, was founded in 1910. In 1952, after the national wide universities adjustment, College of Chemistry of Peking University was combined with former departments of chemistry of Tsinghua University and Yanjing University. In 1994 College of Chemistry was renamed as College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering (abbreviated to College of Chemistry). The former technical physics subject was merged into College of Chemistry in 2001.
Now, College of Chemistry is set up with 5 departments: Department of Chemistry, Department of Material Chemistry, Department of Polymer Science and Engineering, Department of Applied Chemistry and Department of Chemical Biology; 8 institutes: Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, Institute of Organic Chemistry, Institute of Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Physical Chemistry and Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry; 2 state key laboratories, 2 MOE key laboratories and research centers: State Key Laboratory of Rare Earth Materials Chemistry and Applications, State Key Laboratory for Structural Chemistry of Unstable and Stable Species, MOE Key Laboratory of Bio-Organic and Molecular Engineering, Analysis and Test Center of Peking University, Experimental Chemistry Center of Peking University, and Nano-Chemistry Technology Research Center of Peking University. Inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, polymer chemistry and physics, organic chemistry and analytical chemistry are the key majors by the MOE. At the end of 2003, MOST approved College of Chemistry and Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Science to jointly prepare to construct Beijing National Laboratory for Molecular Science. College of Chemistry undertakes Acta Physico-Chimica Sinica and University Chemistry, and hold Research Center of High School Chemical Education by the trust of MOE.
16. Princeton University - Department of ChemistryThe Department of Chemistry is a vital, expanding hub of scientific inquiry with deep historic roots and a ready grasp on the future.
Housed in the world-class Frick Chemistry Laboratory newly opened in 2010, faculty and students work at the frontiers of science where the lines between chemistry and other disciplines merge. They conduct collaborative, interdisciplinary research with the potential to produce anything from new molecules and forms of energy to advanced models of catalysis and innovative materials. They also are immersed in the classic pursuit of chemistry -- to examine the composition of substances and investigate their properties and reactions.
Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are invited and encouraged to pursue individualized programs. Their experience is enhanced by strong faculty mentoring and access to world-leading intellectual and physical resources. Undergraduates carry out research projects both in and out of the classroom in state-of-the-art facilities, working side-by-side with faculty and graduate students.
