Education and research in basic and applied chemistry have become more and more important in light of a strong societal demand for the materials that possess high functionality while harmonizing with the global environment. The Department of Applied Chemistry aims to cultivate human resources who can analyze, design, and develop functional materials at a molecular level while considering the environment, through the concept of “environment-friendly chemistry,” employing state-of-the-art research in each field with the cooperation of each laboratory.
Concretely, in the master’s course, we provide a wide-ranging specialized chemistry education comprising chemical reaction theory as well as organic, inorganic and analytical chemistry. We also give students assignments to analyze the structure, chemical reactivity and physical property of materials at the molecular level, as well as to design and develop novel functional materials. Through these processes, we develop researchers and advanced engineers who can chemically not only design environmentally harmless molecules and reactions but also develop environmentally harmonized chemical processes. In the doctor’s course, we nurture highly skilled professionals and researchers, based on the basic knowledge acquired in the master’s course, who are able to solve problems from higher aspects, settle on an original working system, and play an active international role as a leader.
