Welcome Message

You are welcome to Department of Chemistry, Federal University of Technology, Owerri.

This is a Department that offers two options that are interrelated. These options are Pure Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry option.

The Pure Chemistry option is an option that prepares a student for thorough basic research which can be applied in medicine, Biotechnology, Physics and Engineering areas. It can be applied in these various areas because there is in-depth   mathematical treatment of all the courses and topics. This mathematical treatment in pure Chemistry does not exclude the biophysics of life expressions. The research area involves the assessment of the bioactive and probable industrial raw material components of natural   product extracts and their application to improve the human health and the environment. Graduates are exposed to work in life science such as pharmaceuticals, clinical diagnosis and surface applications during material development.

Industrial Chemistry option emphasizes on the chemical application in other areas of life such as in oil and other chemical industries. We work on marginal field development applying micro emulsion Technologies.  A lot of effort is made in study of climate changes by GIS application to pollution studies. We have been able to apply other aspects such as artificial intelligence procedure in optimum evaluations as well as Mat- Lab series in optimization.
