Dekan: Prof. Dr. Torsten C. Schmidt

With around 1700 students distributed more or less evenly across its three degree programmes of chemistry, water science and teacher training in chemistry, the UDE‘s Faculty of Chemistry is one of the largest of its kind in Germany. Twenty-two professors and three independent junior research groups conduct research in eight fields: inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, technical chemistry, analytical chemistry, environmental microbiology and biotechnology, chemistry education, and theoretical chemistry. Between 50 and 60 young scientists complete their doctorates with us every year. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of research at our faculty, their backgrounds range from chemistry to physics, biology and the engineering sciences.
