Welcome to the Department of Chemistry
Established in 1871 with the appointment of Professor James Gow Black, the Department of Chemistry at the University of Otago is the oldest chemistry department in New Zealand. It has grown to be one of the largest Departments in the Division of Sciences and contributes to various courses and programmes in Sciences and Health Sciences at the University of Otago, New Zealand's first University. The Department is widely acknowledged as one of the top Chemistry Departments in New Zealand, as exemplified by researchers receiving the Prime Minister's Science Prize in 2011.
