Synthetic Chemistry and Biological Chemistry

Chemistry is a discipline that seeks to reveal the nature of substances and the changes that occur within such substances on the molecular level. Conversely, chemistry also involves the techniques by which substances are endowed with specific properties. In a way, the 21st century is the age of chemistry because many of the issues that are closely related to the very existence of the human race, such as energy, information, life, drugs, and the environment, can be discerned on the molecular level or through the eyes of chemistry. With synthetic chemistry, there are endless possibilities for creating diverse properties and functions. Biological chemistry is not merely concerned with the revelation of biological phenomena but makes it possible to utilize and modify such phenomena.

The philosophy of the Department of Synthetic Chemistry and Biological Chemistry is to develop an interdisciplinary approach to the formulation of creative, comprehensive precision science based on the fundamentals of synthetic chemistry and biological chemistry. The department endeavors to create new technology that will form the industrial foundation to enable us to foster a wholesome natural perspective and philosophy and a healthy sustainable society.
