About the Chemistry Department

Chemistry education at SNU provides a link between the fundamental principles governing the nature of the universe and the science of life and spans learning towards traditional as well as a variety of interdisciplinary courses.

The department is committed to pursue research on fundamental and applied problems by addressing the scientific inquiry of both faculty and student investigators for the development of research & innovation in frontiers areas of the multidisciplinary domain – a significant value addition to the industry-academia collaboration, a platform for real-world applications.

Department’s research motto has been to work on diversified areas encompassing the breadth and depth of the chemical sciences in both compelling and interesting problems and that too at various interfaces. This realization is possible with advances in a collaborative approach between theory, experiments and methodology at domestic and international levels.

All chemistry labs are equipped with fume-hoods, Schlenk lines, eyewash stations and safety showers. Lab facilities include advanced analytical instruments such as Flash Chromatography, Gas Chromatography with MS, Gel Permeation Chromatography, HPLC (Prep & Analytical), FPLC, NMR, LCMS-qToF, MALDI-ToF, DSC, TGA, Single-crystal X-ray diffractometer, Electrochemical analyzer, Fluorimeter, TCSPC, Polarimeter, UV-visible, High-resolution FTIR, Raman spectrometers, Microwave reactor, Inverted microscope, Fluorescent microscope, Host-stage polarized microscope, Bio-safety cabinets, CO2 incubators, Shaker incubators, Glovebox, Multimode plate reader, Electroporator, Deep freezer, cell counter and Liquid Nitrogen generation plant.

Computational facilities that include a high-performance IBM cluster (“Magus”) having 60-node and 992-cores along with two nodes with GPU processors, delivering a theoretical peak performance of ~30TF. Additionally, several Linux workstations are used for teaching as well as research purposes. Software for bioinformatics and cheminformatics, molecular modeling, molecular dynamics, quantum chemistry, data analysis and statistical learning are also available.

Our library, housed in a modern 5-story building, provides online access, from anywhere in the campus, to a large number of electronic journals and databases including APS, AIP, ACS, RSC, AMS, SIAM, Springer, Elsevier, Wiley and Nature journals, in addition to various books, e-books and other learning resources.

Application deadline: 21 Jan 2022
