Applied Chemistry

Department of Chemistry

Department of Chemistry Members of the Department of Chemistry with three faculty members in the fields of Organic Chemistry, Decomposition and Minerals in the form of the Department of Chemical Engineering since February 2007 was responsible for providing service courses for the departments of the university.

In September 2015, following the final approval of the High Development Council of the Ministry of Education, the admission of a chemistry student in the applied orientation and in the bachelor's degree began. After 4 student admission courses, the Department of Chemistry of Urmia University of Technology with three faculty members began its official activities in May 2017.

One of the future plans of this group is to complete the faculty staff in different fields of chemistry and to launch a master's degree, especially in interdisciplinary fields. Currently, chemistry laboratories are providing services to undergraduate and graduate students with equipment such as spectrophotometers, gas chromatographs, evaporators, furnaces, etc.


Introduction to the field

Chemistry is often defined as the science of studying materials and the reactions in which materials are involved. In fact, physicists, geologists, and biologists also study matter, but it is only chemists who study the reactions to that matter. For example, only one chemist seeks to make chemical compounds in order to understand the reactions that lead to the production of these compounds.

In fact, a very large number of chemists are employed by the chemical and pharmaceutical industries to make plastics, coatings, ceramics, drugs, fillers, alloys, and many other new things. These synthesizing chemists must first determine what reaction can be used to make their target compound and then determine under what optimized conditions the production of the compound will have the lowest cost and appropriate efficiency.

Once the best reaction conditions have been determined, a chemist must determine how the compound can be purified, and finally the chemist must identify the compound. This final stage of identification involves not only determining the exact percentage of the constituent elements of the compound but also determining the three-dimensional structure of the compound.
