Welcome to the Department of Chemistry at the GongGuan campus of National Taiwan Normal University. Our department was founded in 1962, and provides unsurpassed opportunities for world-class research across a broad range of chemical fields. With over twenty-five faculty members, we have a reputation for excellence in both teaching and research. We also cooperate closely with Academia Sinica and other research institutes, reflecting the strong interdisciplinary nature of our department. As an indicator of the recent growth and research success within the department, we are now listed as one of the top 10 departments of chemistry in the nation. Our department offers training opportunities, both in traditional areas of chemistry, including organic synthesis, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, computational chemistry, analytical chemistry, biochemistry and chemical education, as well as areas of interdisciplinary research, including material science, medicinal chemistry and energy-related research. The goal of the Ph.D. program in Chemistry at National Taiwan Normal University is to equip a new generation of scientists with the skills needed to assume positions of leadership in research and teaching. In addition to our strength in the traditional sub-fields of chemistry, we have a long history of training high school teachers, who will function at the interface of chemistry and other disciplines. Research in the Chemistry Department is supplemented with an active seminar program and symposia. Further discussions of current research take place via our student seminar program and annual Chemistry Research week. Most of our students have opportunities to attend national and international scientific meetings. The department prizes excellence in teaching by both its faculty and graduate students. Students who have excelled in teaching and research are honored at our annual awards ceremony.
