Chemistry and Chemical Biology
The Cornell Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology has a long history of discovery, innovation and scholarship. We are fortunate to count Nobel Prize winners, National Academy Members, MacArthur Fellows and Guggenheim Fellows among our faculty. Teaching thousands of undergraduate and advanced students each year, education is a central focus of our endeavors. Our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows perform cutting-edge research that is supported by many national granting agencies and foundations. We are committed to the advancement and inclusion of all students and aim to foster a diverse environment for science and learning.
New research has shown that ultrasmall Cornell Prime Dots, or C’Dots, which are among the nanocarriers for therapeutics once thought to be viable only by injection, have the potential to be administered orally.Read more
Cornell chemists have developed a technique that allows them to image polymerization catalysis reactions at single-monomer resolution, key in discovering the molecular composition of a synthetic polymer.Read more
Researchers have found an innovative way to handle fluorinated gases as stable solids -- and the same process could someday be used to capture greenhouse gases.Read more
