Research Opportunities

What will Undergraduate Research in the Chemistry department do for you?

  • Hands-on experience for undergraduates in cutting-edge research and scholarships
  • Opportunities for individual interaction with top-notch faculty
  • Training in the use of state-of-the-art instrumentation

The range of research subjects spans the interest of 16 active research faculty in:

Analytical chemistry

         Development of methods for the detection of molecules of environmental and medical importance; development of new battery materials.

Inorganic chemistry

         Design of metal-based anticancer agents; development of catalysts for indurstrial processes; computational analysis of industrially important processes.

Organic chemistry

         Ligand design for metal-catalyzed reactions; carbohydrate methodology; drugs for photodynamic therapy; supramolecular chemistry; organic light-harvesting nanoassemblies; DNA synthesis; photochemically induced electron transfer; mechanisms of organic reactions; design of new pharmaceuticals.

Physical chemistry
