About the Division:

Recipients of graduate degrees in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Florida receive extensive training in the synthetic, theoretical and physical aspects of the field that are applied regularly by inorganic chemists in academic, industrial and government research laboratories. The inorganic faculty pursues a range of research interests that encompasses almost every area of modern inorganic and organometallic chemistry including transition metal, main group, physical-inorganic, structural, inorganic-analytical, bioinorganic, organometallic, catalysis, solid state and materials chemistry.

The Inorganic Division is housed in new, custom-designed laboratory space in the Chemistry Laboratory Building (CLB) which was dedicated in February 1991. This brand new facility is located directly next door to the other major chemistry buildings. The Inorganic Division attracts graduate students from all over the country; thus, the graduate student group is an unusually fine resource for enhancing the breadth of one’s professional as well as social outlook and experience.

The Division hosts a number of events that provide the graduate student with exposure to varied areas of research in other universities and industries. The Department Colloquium Series features noted inorganic chemists, as well as leading speakers from other branches of chemistry. The divisional seminars include talks by additional outside speakers as well as faculty and student.
