Welcome to Department of Chemistry!

Chemistry is a field to create substances carrying high efficiency and function, based on theoretical understanding of properties of molecules and atoms. Chemistry focuses on the transformation of molecules. All scientific areas related to material-transformation should have a close concern for chemistry. For instance, life-phenomena are modulated by a number of chemical reactions; accordingly, life science is a branch of chemistry. Such scientific fields as physics, agriculture, pharmacy, earth science, ecology, and astronomy, are similarly covered by chemistry. With such a background, the infinity of material-combination will provide a big future for chemistry. Our Chemistry Department wishes that all of our students learn the fundamentals of chemistry, which will enable them to play active roles in any discipline, along with process to develop fundamental ideas toward high technology.


Our curriculum covers a wide range of chemical areas, which are allocated by 18 excellent staff members. They educate 37 students per year with high-level educational content, as the following subjects. Physical chemistry : cluster chemistry, laser spectroscopy, life physical chemistry, computer chemistry, and theoretical chemistry, Inorganic chemistry : nano crystalchemistry , solid chemistry, inorganic synthesis, nano surface chemistry, electrochemistry, metal surface chemistry, and environmental chemistry Material science : polymer chemistry, polymer nano solid-state, high-performance electromagnetic materials, inorganic nano chemistry, and energy converting chemistry, Organic chemistry : organic synthesis, complex-catalysts reactions, electroorganic chemistry, medicinal nano -synthesis, medicinal resource chemistry, organic reactions, and natural products chemistry, Life chemistry : bioresponce system, bio- nano catalysts, glyco -life chemistry, and bioorganic chemistry
