Department of Chemistry

ACS News: If you are headed to the ACS meeting in Philadelphia, we’d love to see you!  See the schedule of Villanova presenters, and stop by and learn about the science going on at Villanova!

The Department of Chemistry at Villanova University, near Philadelphia, offers masters and bachelors degrees, including an American Chemical Society accredited degree program for undergraduates.  Our faculty actively conduct research in diverse areas such as nanotechnology, environmental chemistry, natural product synthesis, catalysis, biochemistry, evolution, and computational chemistry. We recognize that undergraduate research provides a unique opportunity to work closely alongside a faculty mentor gaining an experience that extends far beyond typical classroom learning, and we encourage all undergraduates to participate in undergraduate research.
