Welcome to UofM Chemistry Department

Hello and welcome to the website of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Memphis. I am happy that you are interested in our department. Chemistry is often mentioned as the central science and you will see that our faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students work at the interface of Chemistry and many other fields.

Our mission is to provide the citizens of Tennessee, the nation, and the world with access to the methods, theory, and tools of modern chemical science and to maintain academic standards and research programs commensurate with the University of Memphis' place as a major urban research university.

Please browse our site and learn of the work that our faculty, staff and current students are doing along with our colleagues around the world. If there is something you cannot find, please let us know. If you are one of our alumni with an interest in renewing your connections to your alma mater, please fill out the Alumni Information Form to let us know more about what you have been doing since graduation from the University of Memphis.
