"Chemistry--- the Center of Science"
Because all the sciences including physics and biology are nowadays improved from the viewpoint of an atomic and molecular size, “Chemistry” takes the center stage of science and develops various areas of medicine, pharmacy, biotechnology, material science, informatics, and environmental and energy sciences.
Division of Applied Chemistry consists of two research groups, "Molecule Chemistry Course" which focuses on controlling a variety of chemical reactions by a molecular level, and "Materials Chemistry Course" which pursues novel functionalities of materials from an atomic and molecular level.
Both courses devote to educating students to develop their ability with sharp creativity and high originality. Our students will gain broad knowledge in chemistry and related fields, and study on novel methods of creating molecules and materials through lectures and their works under a high level and international research environment.
The two courses cooperate mutually in promoting at the world-class level to serve as scientific and industrial bases. In addition, we are collaborating closely with other departments, graduate schools and research institutes in Osaka University to aim at forming a center of nanomaterials and atom/molecule technologies.
