Mission

Goal and Characteristics

A function of the Department of Applied Chemistry is to support the increasing demands of the chemical related workforce of both the Taiwanese government and the local industries.  In addition, we aim to establish fruitful collaborations between companies in the Southern Taiwan Science Park (STSP) and the greater Kaohsiung area.  Since many of the companies in the STSP are developing electronics, optoelectronics, and biotechnological products, they will require many well trained and well rounded chemists.  Our goal is to provide these companies with highly marketable, well trained chemists ready to contribute to their teams.  As the traditional chemical industries (for example: petroleum, metallurgy, and plastics) in the greater Kaohsiung area are increasing their research and development teams, the need for students with advanced degrees in rapidly increasing demand, but the supply is low.  With the collaboration of local industries, we have developed our academic curriculum which is focused on training young chemists that can complete independent research and development projects.

Mission

The central dogma of chemistry related academic departments are focused on teaching basic chemistry and carrying our fundamental research projects.  In addition, chemical industries in Taiwan have relied on foreign know-how for the production of fine chemicals and high-value added products, often without using the best regional solution. Without the support from academia, industries are facing difficulties remaining competitive.  Therefore, the industrial setting will require a synergistic relationship with the academic community that will concentrate on application oriented research projects of today’s world instead of focusing on fundamental research problems.

Therefore, the research topics conducted in our department include

  Advanced Material Processing: Preparation and characterize nanomaterial and semiconductor material, preparation and applications of high efficient battery material, and research on biocatalytic materials.

Material Chemistry: Developing new analytic procedures for improving the material analysis during the semiconductor manufacturing process (including Chemical Vapor Deposition, Lithography Process).

Research in Chemistry: Bioinorganic Chemistry, Theoretical Chemical Dynamics, Organic and Inorganic Synthesis.
