Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry serves as a pivotal institution providing core expertise in teaching and research on a variety of BOKU-relevant scientific themes related to chemistry and chemistry-related topics. Its research is focused on the biotechnology of proteins and glycans, the exploitation of renewable resources and methodological excellence in the field of chemical analysis and synthesis. We follow the principles of "green chemistry" by using environmentally-benign chemicals, energy-saving techniques and efficient chemical reactions following the principles of atom economy.
