Chemistry has a role in almost every aspect of our lives, from the design of new drugs to curing diseases to the development of self-cleaning materials to the advanced dyes and plastics used in Australia's $20 note.
Chemistry provides strong linkages to all physical, natural and life science disciplines. We seek to demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of chemistry as it applies to other sciences such as forensic, biological, physics and the materials sciences.
