School of Chemistry Research
The School of Chemistry has internationally and nationally competitive research programs in both pure and applied chemistry. Major research areas include targeted drug design and synthesis, development of NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry for studying biological processes, atmospheric chemistry, food chemistry, analytical and environmental chemistry, nanomaterials and intelligent polymers.
Two UOW chemistry academics have recently received recognition for their outstanding contributions to the field.
Associate Professor Dianne Jolley has just been named President of the Australasian branch of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC).
Dr Adam Trevitt, has recently been awarded the 2014 Royal Australian Chemical Institute’s Physical Chemistry Lectureship, which will see him travel to universities around Australia to promote his research program.
