The Department of Chemistry at SUNY-ESF is unique in that it is organized around the interdisciplinary areas of biochemistry and natural products chemistry, environmental chemistry and polymer chemistry. It stresses a strong foundation in the traditional areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry) plus integration of these areas into its specialties. Thus, students at all levels enjoy the advantages of a chemistry program with specialties aligned with the needs of the 21st century.
The department is committed to maintaining its leading role in extending the state of knowledge in its specialties. The department’s home is the 71,000-square-foot Edwin C. Jahn Laboratory. This state-of-the-art facility for research and teaching is well equipped with instruments needed for modern chemical research. The department involves all of its students in research, giving them familiarity with the actual practice of chemistry.
Every year, several students and faculty members from the Department of Chemistry set up demonstrations in the ESF booth at the New York State Fair.
