Chemistry Department of Moscow State University is a world-known center
for Chemistry education. Chemistry
education at the University started from the year it was founded, 1755. The
founder of Moscow University, Michael Lomonosov, was one of the best chemists
in his time. In 1755 he established the Laboratory of Chemistry at Moscow
University which later evolved into the Department of Chemistry.
The Department of Chemistry includes
17 chairs, 83 laboratories. 1048 students and 283 postgraduates study at the Department. 11 full members of
Russian Academy of Sciences, 4 corresponding members and 202 professors holding
PhD and Doctoral Degrees in Chemistry are now preparing students to become high class specialists in modern
92 Dr.Sc. and 394 PhD theses
were defended for the last 10 years at the Department.
Department of Chemistry is a
world-known center for scientific research. Researches of the Faculty create
new semiconductors and high temperature superconductors, synthesize
new complex organic and organoelement compounds, develop catalysts for
oil refining and petrochemistry, synthesize
new medicines, new polymers with liquid crystal properties, develop new
biotechnological processes. Scientists of the Chemistry Department made great contributions to the development
of modern theory of catalysis, photochemistry, electrochemistry and chemistry
of high dispersion systems.
Science Department is providing information support, and assistance in organizing and carrying out researches according to the international standard. Science Department is focusing special attention to the fundamental studies and its practical realization.
Our scientists are currently
working on over 200 projects in the framework of Russian Foundation for Basic
Research, about 30 projects sponsored by the INTAS Program, and many other
international projects and agreements.
