Research

Chemistry has a rich tradition at UF with course offerings among the first in the history of the university. Notably, the first doctoral degree and the first external research grant on campus were both awarded in chemistry.  Chemistry plays an integral role among the sciences, lying at the nexus of the physical, applied and life sciences. Although organized by the traditional areas of chemistry, our faculty are broadly engaged in extensive interdisciplinary and collaborative research programs related to the biological, materials, medicinal, and physical sciences as well as engineering and many other disciplines. Together, we target problems vital to next generation technologies and explore fundamental research at the molecular and atomic level.
