About the Chemistry Department

We conduct basic and applied research in the chemical sciences with an emphasis on energy science.  Primary research subjects range from fundamental gas and condensed phase molecular dynamics to sustainable fuel synthesis and use, solar energy conversion, and novel media for chemical separations.  Fundamental studies of neutrino properties are also conducted in several international collaborations. The research programs of the Chemistry Department are:
