The Department of Chemistry, National University of Singapore, located at National University of Singapore Block S8 Level 3, 3 Science Drive 3 Singapore 117543. The Department of Chemistry started as part of the Raffles College in 1929. Chemistry classes was taught initially in the Government Analyst's offices at Sepoy Lines. The first lecture on chemistry in the College was delivered by Dr G. E. Brooke. Dr George McOwan, who arrived in 1929, became the first Professor of Chemistry. He was later joined by Mr C. T. J. Owen in 1930 as a lecturer in the department. Dr P. Purdie succeeded Prof G. McOwan as the Professor of Chemistry in 1940 when the latter resigned.
Our undergraduate curriculum is designed especially for our students to gain in-depth knowledge in Chemistry and to equip them with skill sets in chemical experimentation. To that end, practical hands-on experiments are an integral part of our curriculum and account for about 25% of the chemistry major requirement. These practical training are conducted in our state-of-the-art teaching laboratories namely the Analytical Chemistry, General Chemistry, Chemical Synthesis, and Advanced Chemistry teaching laboratories. Our teaching laboratories are upgraded and modernized periodically to keep pace with the latest technological advances in chemical instrumentation. Our mission is to provide our students with the best training platforms so that they can acquire the necessary skills and experience as they embark on their careers after they graduate.
