Our new Green Chemical Futures building will house new, high-tech undergraduate laboratories, collaborative learning spaces, modern IT facilities, and a resource centre, staffed by experienced teachers and tutors.
Our new laboratories, to be opened at the end of 2014, will be purpose-built high-tech laboratories armed with collaborative learning spaces and modern IT facilities. Read more.

Chemistry is leading the Monash-Warwick Alliance, a new and innovative model for research-led institutions to meet the global challenges of the 21st century. It aims to produce sought after graduates with a global education.
Chemistry has recently been ranked 33rd in the world QS rankings which take into account reputation with the world’s employers.
Congratulations to Prof Doug MacFarlane who has been appointed as the 2014 RSC Australasian Lecturer; Prof Leone Spiccia who is the 2013 winner of the RACI Burrows Award (also been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry) and Dr David Lupton who is the 2013 winner of the RACI Rennie Medal.
Congratulations to the following ARC Linkage awardees:
The School of Chemistry hosted ~100 Year 9/10 secondary students alongside 25 Young Scientists of Australia volunteers for The ConocoPhillips Science Experience. Despite an unprecedented Melbourne heatwave, this enthusiastic group navigated their way through a three-day programme participating in lab activities and tours, attending a number of seminars and even conducting their own “IDEA Experiments”, just like our undergraduate students do in Science at Monash. By the end of the programme students were “exhausted but inspired”, with a number indicating the program has completely turned them on to the prospect of studying more science in their VCE studies and beyond.
Monash Chemistry is the first Department in Australia with international accreditation.
Both our BSc(Hons) and BSciAdv(Hons) students with a major in chemistry are accredited by both the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in the UK and the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI). We are the first Institution in Australia to hold joint accreditation and the fourth internationally to be accredited outside of the UK for our degree programs. This dual accreditation strengthens our reputation, makes our programs internationally recognised and enhances employment opportunities for our graduates in a global market.
Come and be part of a chemistry department that thinks globally.
Our School provides world’s best practice in chemical education and training through access to an intellectual environment with world-class facilities for research in the chemical sciences. We have a broad research base that emphasises the chemistry of sustainability and strengths in materials, synthetic, analytical and green chemistry. Read more
