Physical Chemistry, Computational Science, Soft Matter, Enzyme Actions
The Program in Chemistry is engaged in research in a variety of fields and continues to lead world-class advancements in structural and solid-state chemistry, analytical chemistry, photochemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, chemical biology, protein biochemistry, supramolecular systems, marine biogeochemistry, advanced materials, computational chemistry, nuclear magnetic resonance and crystallography. The quality and breadth of research is evident in the individual faculty labs and interdisciplinary research centers of excellence.
Our research programs can be loosely grouped into four categories: computational chemistry, drug discovery, environmental science, and materials science.
Computational Chemistry involves the use of computer simulation and programming to solve complex chemistry questions.
