Welcome to the Faculty of Chemistry
The Göttingen Faculty of Chemistry stands for research strength and attractive, research-oriented study programmes. It is characterised by close networking with neighbouring faculties and research institutes on the Göttingen campus.
New strategy reduces waste products in pharmaceutical production
In order to be able to further develop drugs in a targeted manner, complex processes have so far been used that are not only expensive but also generate a large amount of undesirable waste products. Scientists under the leadership of the University of Göttingen have now succeeded in establishing a resource-saving, more sustainable alternative: by changing the structure of the original drug directly, i.e. post-synthetically.more (german)...
Race at the edge of the Sun: ions are faster than atoms
Astrophysicists observe physics phenomena in gas streams - Ions move faster than atoms in the gas streams of a solar prominence. Scientists at the University of Göttingen, the Institut d'Astrophysique in Paris and the Istituto Ricerche Solari Locarno have observed this. The results of the study were published in The Astrophysical Journal.more ...

Information for first semester students:
The winter semester 20/21 in Chemistry will be conducted digitally in parts, especially the lectures and many seminar groups will be digital and partly in the format of video conferences. We therefore strongly recommend that you start the semester with a good technical equipment (newer laptop or desktop computer with camera, sufficiently powerful WLAN in your apartment). Software can be installed free of charge by enrolled students via campus licences or at reduced prices for students (MS Office package, ChemDraw etc.). If you have any questions, please contact the dean's office (email@example.com) or the student representation (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Old Chemical Laboratory honored as Historic Chemical Landmark
The Old Chemical Laboratory of the University of Göttingen in the Hospital Street has been awarded as “Historic Chemical Landmark” on 17 October 2019 within the program of the German Chemical Society (GDCh).more...
Funding for network
The European Social Fund and the Ministry of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony will support the project "Training Compass Chemistry - Designing Sustainable Transitions" from April 1, 2020. The Faculty of Chemistry is increasingly networking with local companies and educational actors to support chemical laboratory assistants who want to study chemistry and vice versa students who want to switch to a more practice-oriented education. In the network, accompanying consulting tools and reliable recognition channels for services rendered are to be developed.
News from the faculty
The Virtual Lab is an internet platform to support the teaching of chemistry. The common working techniques in the laboratory are explained and illustrated in the form of short films.
We are pleased to welcome you to the Virtual Study Orientation of the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Göttingen. (Just in german)
