Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry at Utrecht University is internationally recognised as a leading institution for teaching and research.
Every year, a large number of students choose to study Chemistry here. The result is a close-knit, active group of students who stimulate each other and enjoy an intensive experience during their time at university. An important part in this is played by the student society USS Proton. The Department also participates in a European student exchange programme.
The Department conducts cutting-edge research in biochemistry, biomolecular structure, catalysis, and hard and soft condensed matter. This research is based on three pillars:
The Department of Chemistry also has close relations with the Chemistry Education section of the Freudenthal Institute for Science and Mathematics Education.
