A diversity of chemical substances enriches our lives. The stage for chemists to develop new substances, clarify their chemical phenomena and also to protect the natural environment is becoming increasingly broad. The aim of the Department of Applied Chemistry is to develop researchers and engineers who possess solid, fundamental capacities for science and a broad perspective for social application.

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Organic Chemistry

    Living organisms, including our own human bodies, all consist of organic molecules. In the field of organic chemistry, we conduct research on various substances, and develop functional molecules or new drugs on the basis of the results.

    Kawasaki Research Group / Matsuda Research Group / Shiina Research Group

  • Inorganic Chemistry

    This area deals with all elements in the periodic table, and studies the synthesis, structure, physical properties, reactions and the like of single elements and inorganic compounds. Our department conducts research in fields including material chemistry, electrochemistry, archeological chemistry, and complex chemistry, as well as in fields of application related to energy and environment.

    Komaba Research Group / Kudo Research Group / Sadakiyo Research Group

  • Physical Chemistry

    Physical chemistry serves as a theoretical basis for all chemical phenomena and many other related phenomena, including life phenomena. We understand these phenomena from the microscopic structure of the substances, for example, their atomic structure, chemical bonds or molecular structure, and also from thermodynamics and state theory, which look at the macroscopic nature of substances.
