With an expanding numbers of faculty and resources, the department is poised to be a major contributor of significant 21st century science. The University of Maryland at College Park is the flagship institution of Maryland's educational system of higher education. More than sixty of the university's academic programs are in the top 25 nationally and, based on citations per paper, our chemical physics program is ranked third.
32. University of Melbourne - Faculty of Science - School of Chemistry The School of Chemistry at The University of Melbourne is one of the largest and oldest in Australia with a distinguished history in teaching and research. We invite you to browse our website and welcome inquiries from students interested in pursuing studies in our undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
33. University of Michigan - Department of Chemistry On June 25, 2000, the American Chemical Society designated the discovery of organic free radicals by Moses Gomberg at the University of Michigan Chemistry Department as a National Historic Chemical Landmark.
The plaque commerating the event reads: In 1900, Moses Gomberg, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Michigan, confirmed the existence of a stable, trivalent organic free radical: triphenylmethyl. In so doing, he challenged the then prevailing belief that carbon could have only four chemical bonds. Gomberg's discovery made a major contribution to theoretical organic chemistry and fostered a field of research that continues to grow and expand. Today, organic free radicals are widely used in plastics and rubber manufacture, as well as medicine, agriculture and biochemistry. MORE
34. University of Oxford - Department of Biochemistry The Biochemistry Department is part of the University of Oxford's Medical Sciences Division, the largest of the University's four academic divisions and ranked third in the world for Biomedicine.
According to the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, 75% of research activity within the Department is rated world-class quality in terms of significance, rigour and originality, making it the highest rated Life Sciences Department within a UK university.
35. University of Oxford - Department of ChemistryTeaching: Oxford Chemistry offers world-class teaching, consistently rated among the best in the UK. Students study a four-year course, a unique feature of which is spending their final year working full-time on a project with some of the leading researchers in the UK.
Research: Oxford is one of the leading chemistry research departments in the world with around 80 academic staff carrying out international-level research, and an annual research income of around L15 million. The latest (2008) Research Assessment Exercise confirmed that Oxford Chemistry has the highest "power rating" (breadth and depth of science) in the UK.
36. University of Pennsylvania - Department of Chemistry Penn Chemistry is a department of ideas and scholars, where the community of faculty, post-doctoral fellows, students, and research staff collaborate in exploring new frontiers in the chemical and molecular sciences.
Penn Chemistry is a leading center of molecular research. Within the department, the traditional sub-fields of biochemistry, organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry serve as a framework from which collaborative, inter-disciplinary experimental and theoretical research is launched. Research thrusts include:
- Synthesis and Characterization of New Compounds and Materials
- Chemistry of Life Processes
- Nanoscale Materials and Molecular Devices
- Chemistry of the Environment
- Energy and the Hydrogen Economy
37. University of Texas - Department of Chemistry and BiochemistryDepartment History
Chemistry’s important place in the educational mission is made clear in early records, even as far back as the very founding of the university. The first Chairman of the Faculty, John W. Mallet, was a well-known chemist, lured to Austin from a prestigious position at the University of Virginia. The first academic building on the “Forty Acres,” constructed specifically for a single discipline, was the Chemical Laboratory in 1891. The first Dean of the newly formed Graduate School, Henry W. Harper, was a popular chemistry professor.
The formative years of the department were marked by a small but highly stable chemical faculty; until 1937 only eight individuals held professorships in the department. During the twenty-two year period between 1896 and 1918, a triumvirate of professors - Harper, Bailey, and Schoch, known as the “Three Pals” - was the Chemistry Department. Early chemistry faculty members were some of the best known and most beloved figures on the young campus, and their involvement in university affairs stretched far beyond their laboratories and classrooms. They were also a devoted group of men. Of the eight chemistry faculty members appointed between 1883 and 1927, only the first two left the university for reasons other than retirement or death. They were dedicated to helping the new academic institution through its difficult early days, and today share the credit for meeting the legislature’s mandate, to build “a university of the first class.”
The faculty began to expand more rapidly after 1937. Eight additional professors joined the department between 1937 and 1940, when the Department of Chemical Engineering was split off and transferred to the College of Engineering. The explosion of scientific research in the United States after World War II resulted in even more accelerated growth in all science and engineering departments across the country. Today the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has nearly professors on active, retired, or emeritus status.
Today the University of Texas at Austin’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry ranks among the top ten departments in North America and among the top five in public institutions. We maintain excellent standings in the five traditional areas of chemistry (analytical, biological, inorganic, physical and organic) and are making significant contributions to the emergent areas of chemical biology and material science. Additionally, opportunities for interdisciplinary research are facilitated by the Texas Materials Institute, the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology, the Center for Molecular and Cellular Toxicology, and the Center for Nano- and Molecular Science and Technology.
Primarily housed in Welch Hall, the department has fully staffed state-of-the-art mass spectrometry facilities (LRMS, HRMS, Electrospray, MALDI-TOF, etc.), NMR facilities (Nicolet NT200, NT 360, QE300, GN500, Bruker AC250, Varian 300, 400 and 500), x-ray crystallographic facilities (Siemens P3 and P4 X-ray diffractometer equipped with Nicolet LT2A low temperature device and CD detector), and a center for computer multi-media support. Additionally, the fully staffed machine, electronics, and glassblowing shops and the Mallet Chemistry Library are housed in the department’s 500,000+ square-feet of modern research and teaching space.
38. University of Tokyo - Department of Chemistry Educational Philosophy of the Department of Chemistry in the School of Science and the Department of Chemistry in the Graduate School of Science The driving force of science comes from intellectual curiosity, one of the most fundamental desires of man in pursuit of clarifying the reasons of nature, and deepening his understanding of the relationship between nature and humanity. Accordingly, science is directed to advancing man's view of nature, or how humans comprehend things in nature. Evolution in science has enabled humankind to view nature objectively, without useless fears, on the basis of universal rules. Cultivated by science, our view of nature provides a mental basis for modern civilization.
