Chemistry at the University of Otago: Making, measuring, understanding

Chemistry is so much a part of our lives, sometimes we don't even notice it! It's at the heart of cooking and eating, breathing and seeing, the clothes we wear and the materials we use to construct our environment.

While studying Chemistry at Otago, you'll look at how chemicals interact with each other, with light and with the environment; how to synthesise novel materials and measure trace amounts of pollutants.
