    Chemistry Department Information
    Chemistry is the exploration of matter; it involves the creation of molecules and materials, and investigation of their structures, properties, functions, and reactivity. Chemistry is everywhere: in space, on the earth, and in the human body. Corresponding to the wide range of topics in chemistry, the Department of Chemistry consists of 15 main laboratories representing all sub-disciplines (physical, inorganic & analytical, organic, and biological), including interdisciplinary areas of physics and the life sciences. In addition, seven laboratories at the Catalysis Research Center, Research Institute of Electronic Sciences, and Institute for Genetic Medicine at Hokkaido University, and four laboratories at the National Institute for Materials Science in Tsukuba, contribute cooperatively to the department.
