Chemistry and its related sciences at Osaka University are much closer to us than one imagines, and are extensively contributing to the growth of science and human society. Chemists have an essential role in the growth and their contribution increases.


About the Chemistry program

We all live on the earth, and we observe many nature phenomena. Most of the phenomena are caused by chemical functions. For example, complicated biological activity is attributable to a huge number of chemical interactions and chemical reactions. Chemistry at Osaka University is a science dealing with the structure, synthesis, properties, and interactions of substances, particularly at the molecular level.

We are surrounded by artificial chemical products, e.g., food, clothing, housing, drugs, traffic and communication tools, and so on, and we are using them everyday. Recently, new materials such as those supporting computer memory storage and superconductivity have been playing an essential role in the recent progress of human culture and technology. The development of these new materials is based on chemistry. On the other hand, some chemicals tend to cause serious environmental problems, whose solution will depend on chemistry research and education in future.
