Inorganic chemistry is concerned with the properties and reactivity of all chemical elements and the roles of metals in biological systems. It impacts diverse technologies, ranging from catalysis and the synthesis of new materials, to drug design and nano-fabrication. Inorganic chemistry is one of the leading and active research areas at NUS-Chemistry. Research groups within the Inorganic Division are engaged in programs which cover modern areas of inorganic chemistry such as organometallic chemistry, mechanism, bioinorganic chemistry, chemistry of coordination compounds, supramolecular chemistry and catalysis as well as a variety of interdisciplinary and emerging topics at the forefront of chemical science like advanced materials chemistry such as nanomaterials, coordination polymers, metal-organic frameworks, molecular electronics and materials for renewable energy and energy storage. Our students receive excellent training, education and resources in research at the very frontier of science.
