ESF's Department of Chemistry is uniquely organized around the interdisciplinary areas of biochemistry and natural products chemistry, environmental chemistry, and polymer chemistry. The department's 71,000-square-foot Edwin C. Jahn Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility, fully equipped for modern chemical research and teaching.

Chemistry students gain a strong foundation in the traditional areas of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, but also in the integration of these areas into specialties aligned with the needs of the 21st century. All students participate in research, gaining familiarity with the actual practice of chemistry.

Why ESF for Chemistry?
