Nanomaterials, molecular electronics, and solid state devices are major foci of physical chemistry research at UA.
Organic research at UA covers the synthesis of new molecules and their applications in medicine, electron transport, charge storage, and switchable devices.
Our faculty perform a wide range of research in the area of inorganic chemistry, from solar energy and light emissions to catalyst systems and medicine.
Biochemistry research at UA focuses on enzymes. In one lab, researchers study gene regulation and antibiotic resistance. In another, researchers explore metalloenzymes and the role metals play in diabetes.
Our analytical chemists use advanced instruments to study materials at the molecular level. One faculty member’s research investigates clean energy storage and harvesting.
Our faculty carry out research in materials chemistry, with recent emphasis on polymers, nanomaterials, molecular electronics, and solid state materials.
