The Faculty of Chemistry, like the other departments of the university, is also affected by the reduced operation for corona protection. Therefore our staff can only be reached via emergency plans.
You can best reach the Dean's Office by e-mail at email@example.com.
For our students and doctoral candidates, we are currently working on solutions for upcoming exam dates, doctorates etc. We will inform you about this by mail or in our StudIP group of the faculty.
We ask for your understanding for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!

Welcome to the Faculty of Chemistry
The Göttingen Faculty of Chemistry stands for research strength and attractive, research-oriented study programmes. It is characterised by close networking with neighbouring faculties and research institutes on the Göttingen campus.
Race at the edge of the Sun: ions are faster than atoms
Astrophysicists observe physics phenomena in gas streams - Ions move faster than atoms in the gas streams of a solar prominence. Scientists at the University of Göttingen, the Institut d'Astrophysique in Paris and the Istituto Ricerche Solari Locarno have observed this. The results of the study were published in The Astrophysical Journal.more ...
The Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Göttingen is currently hosting three new researchers with an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grant. The chemists Dr. Yang Liu and Prof. Dr. Hua Guo from China and the physicist Prof. Dr. Liv Hornekaer from Denmark can use the sponsorship to implement research projects at two institutes of the Faculty.

Support for teacher training
The Fonds der Chemischen Industrie (FCI) is funding a project by the chemistry didactician Prof. Dr. Thomas Waitz on the development of digital skills in teacher training in chemistry. Digital teaching concepts are being developed in cooperation between the science and didactics departments and tested in the XLAB student laboratory. The FCI funding supports the expansion of the experimental collection with modern digital media, instruments and tools.
Old Chemical Laboratory honored as Historic Chemical Landmark
The Old Chemical Laboratory of the University of Göttingen in the Hospital Street has been awarded as “Historic Chemical Landmark” on 17 October 2019 within the program of the German Chemical Society (GDCh).more...
Funding for network
The European Social Fund and the Ministry of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony will support the project "Training Compass Chemistry - Designing Sustainable Transitions" from April 1, 2020. The Faculty of Chemistry is increasingly networking with local companies and educational actors to support chemical laboratory assistants who want to study chemistry and vice versa students who want to switch to a more practice-oriented education. In the network, accompanying consulting tools and reliable recognition channels for services rendered are to be developed.
News from the faculty
The Virtual Lab is an internet platform to support the teaching of chemistry. The common working techniques in the laboratory are explained and illustrated in the form of short films.
We are pleased to welcome you to the Virtual Study Orientation of the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Göttingen. (Just in german)
