The Materials Chemistry concentration prepares students for employment in research and development of products and materials such as coatings, polymers, composites, superconducting materials, graphite materials, integrated-circuit chips, nanotechnology and fuel cells.

In order to complete the requirements for this concentration, students must complete two core chemistry courses and two courses in materials that are related to the capstone project, which include:

  • Macromolecular Crystallography: Methods and Applications (CHEM 555)
  • Bioinorganic Chemistry (CHEM 567)
  • Biological Chemistry (organic focus) (CHEM 451)
  • Biomolecular Imaging (organic focus) (CHEM 559)
  • Inorganic Chemistry (inorganic focus) (CHEM 462)
  • Main Group Chemistry (inorganic focus) (CHEM 565)
