Department of Chemistry Chemistry education at SNU provides a link between the fundamental principles governing the nature of the universe and the science of life, and spans traditional as well as a variety of inter-disciplinary areas. We offer undergraduate specializations in Chemical Physics, Chemical Biology, Chemistry of Materials, Bioinformatics or Chemistry of the Environment. You can also combine a Minor in Chemistry with a Major in any discipline at SNU. University-wide elective courses in the curriculum allow students unprecedented freedom to explore subjects outside their chosen major; in some depth. This flexible and broad curriculum prepares students not just for a career in chemistry upon graduation, but for a leadership role in the world as well. The Undergraduate Chemistry Experience The chemistry curriculum at SNU provides both a broad background in chemical principles as well as in-depth study of chemistry or chemistry-related areas that build on this background. The chemistry curriculum is divided into three categories: introductory general chemistry, foundation courses providing breadth across sub-disciplines, and rigorous in-depth courses that build upon these foundations and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Since chemistry is an experimental science, substantial laboratory work is an integral part of almost all our courses. The introductory general chemistry course provides a common grounding in basic chemical concepts for students with diverse backgrounds, develops basic mathematical and laboratory skills, and prepares students for the
foundation courses. Foundation courses in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry provide breadth and lay the groundwork for more in-depth course work. Laboratory Experience: The chemistry laboratory experience at SNU includes synthesis of molecules; measurement of chemical properties, structures, and phenomena; hands-on experience with modern analytical instrumentation; and computational data analysis and modeling. All laboratory programs are conducted in a safe environment that includes adherence to national and state regulations regarding hazardous waste management and laboratory safety including, facilities for chemical waste disposal, safety information and reference materials, and personal protective equipment available to all students and faculty. The chemistry laboratories at SNU are equipped with functioning fume hoods, safety showers, eyewashes, first aid kits, and fire extinguishers are readily available. Students are trained in modern chemical safety, to understand responsible disposal techniques, understand and comply with safety regulations, understand and use material safety data sheets (MSDS), recognize and minimize potential chemical and physical hazards in the laboratory, and know how to handle laboratory emergencies effectively. Problem-Solving Skills: As part of the SNU experience, students will be expected to develop the ability to define problems, develop testable hypotheses, design and execute experiments, analyze data using statistical methods, and
draw appropriate conclusions. The chemistry curriculum provides ample opportunities for developing both written and oral communication skills, as well as team skills. Our instructional programs incorporate team experiences in classroom and laboratory components of the chemistry curriculum. Post-Graduate Programs: At the postgraduate level, SNU offers the Ph.D. program in chemistry. Students for this program are drawn from the fields of Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science and Statistics. Foundation courses in the first semester ensure that all students, irrespective of undergraduate specialization, possess the requisite background to complete the course of study and benefit fully from the program. The estimated demand for around 8000 bioinformatics professionals in India indicates good job opportunities for high quality graduates. Both Bioinformatics and Cheminformatics offer good career opportunities, in industry as well as in academia, in developed markets abroad such as the US and Europe - the major employers being: industries from biotechnology, agribiotech, pharmaceutical; IT industries working towards providing solutions to life Sciences, biotechnology and health-care sectors; as well as R&D institutes and academia. The Ph.D. program in chemistry at SNU consists of a rigorous regimen of both broadbased and in-depth course work, development of project proposals, research and literature seminars, in-depth dissertation research under the supervision of a research advisor, and a public thesis defense.
Chemistry Research at SNU Research activities are not confined to postgraduate level, but are integrated into the under-graduate program at SNU through our Research Experiential & Applied Learning courses. Undergraduate research allows students to integrate and reinforce chemistry knowledge from their formal course work, develop their scientific and professional skills, and create new scientific knowledge. Original research culminating in a comprehensive written report provides an effective means for integrating undergraduate learning experiences, and allows students to participate directly in the process of science. Opportunities for research in chemistry at SNU are available in the following broad areas: Bio-inorganic Chemistry Catalysis Chemical Biology Chemical & Biological Crystallography Cheminformatics Computational Quantum Chemistry Coordination Chemistry Green and Environmental Chemistry Materials Chemistry Medicinal Chemistry Metalloradical Chemistry Physical Chemistry Polymer Chemistry Protein Chemistry Supramolecular Chemistry Synthetic Organic Chemistry Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Chemical

Research Focus: Our research, covering both the fundamental as well as applied sciences, is interdisciplinary in nature. In one hand, we produce novel organic materials (ferroelectrics, optoelectronic, semiconductors etc.), with potential applications in memristors, nonvolatile memory storage, transistors, sensors, etc. for studying their structure-property relationship. On the other hand, we are interested in the topological analysis of hydrogen bonds and interaction energies in proteins and their complexes from electron density point of view. We also perform charge density analysis in biologically active molecules for studying polymorph driven drug design.

Especially, small molecule based multicolor fluorogenic probes are applied for sensing and monitoring the dysregulation of important biomolecules that lead to diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. In addition, nanohybrid systems for non-invasive multimodal imaging including Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) and MALDI mass imaging techniques to study biological events at lab level. The developed fluorogenic probes, efficient drug carriers, affordable diagnostic systems to be translated for societal benefits is the ultimate goal in our research lab.

Class of 2017 & 2018 to talk about SNU
“I fondly remember the first few days at SNU, when we were all getting to know each other. I met people pursuing Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and every other stream but, couldn’t find anyone from chemistry. I soon realized that we were a batch of just four. In the first two years, whenever I introduced myself as a Chemistry undergrad, the reaction was ‘You mean Chemical Engineering, right?” Today the response is completely different. The Chemistry department provides hands-on research experience to its undergrads. You guys are so lucky to get to work in those labs. The transition has been incredible and the four of us have been fortunate to see the department grow. I can proudly say at we have come a long way! Srirupa Sen, B.Sc. (Research) Chemistry
