What is Chemistry? Nearly everything that is important to us gains its properties from the fact that it is made of molecules. Chemistry is the central Molecular Science. It is about everything that has to do with molecules: making them, using their properties to engineer useful things, studying fundamental physics with molecules, and using their physical properties to achieve new effects. Molecular science is the confluence of chemistry, physics, engineering, molecular biology, geology, medicine, and materials science. Thus, staff in the School of Chemistry work on projects strongly tied to other disciplines in exciting areas such as plasmonics, molecular magnets, battery technology, 3D printing, malaria, and many others. The School of Chemistry is therefore perfectly placed to form coalitions with the other schools and colleges to go after the big questions in science.
