Department of Chemistry - Research Agenda

Areas of Research Focus Within the Department of Chemistry include the use of local raw materials and/or agricultural waste for the development of value-added commercially viable products. These include food products, food additives, pharmaceuticals, biofuels, bio-filters and bio-coagulants. The development of these products are directed by food and water analysis as well as societal needs.
