Chemistry is the most central of all the sciences. Much of our understanding of the material world is based on the areas of Chemistry which are conventionally called Analytical, Inorganic, Organic, Physical or Theoretical; but Chemistry is also central to other disciplines such as Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Materials Science, Medicine, Mineralogy, Molecular Biology, Pharmacology and Physics. This breadth is reflected in what we do here at KNUST.
The Department of Chemistry at KNUST is Ghana's and one of Africa's finest departments of Chemistry. We are dedicated to the creation of knowledge in all branches of chemistry and the development of human capital and leadership for the advancement of Ghana, Africa and the world. The Department is home to very highly qualified faculty and extremely motivated students.
