Why Chemistry?

All matter is made of chemicals. Chemistry therefore has a central position within the natural sciences. In addition, we live in a scientific-technical civilization in which chemistry makes an important contribution to improving our quality of life, e.g. through the development of novel substances or active agents. The faculty is committed to a fundamental broad education in the field of chemistry and to the special development of its focal research areas. [our mission]
