The Department of Chemistry currently has faculty conducting research in the area of biochemistry, nanochemistry, computational, inorganic, nutrition including type 2 diabetes, organic, petroleum and physical chemistry. Research is done using modern research equipment.
Research employs student researchers and post doctorate fellows. Faculty members of the department are involved in academic and industrial collaborations at the national and international levels.
For a list of researchers and descriptions of their projects, see the menu items under Department Research.
Undergraduate research is an important component of our programs. Our students work closely with faculty members and their laboratory groups on research projects. There are many ways for undergraduate students to get involved, including paid positions, summer research positions, and credit in our fourth year honours research project course.
