Department Chemistry

The natural sciences form the foundation of every technology- and application-oriented research. By definition, chemistry occupies a position in this structure between physics and biology, much like how the molecule aligns itself functionally and quantitatively between the atom and the cell.

At the Technical University of Munich, the Department of Chemistry has embraced the challenge of conducting research and teaching at the interfaces of modern technologies, in close collaboration with other natural sciences and engineering disciplines. The emphasis on these areas has been made visible both internally and externally through the successful introduction of new academic programs. Within the Bavarian higher education landscape, the department plays a unique role with a strong emphasis on technology and a broad research profile.
