  Camden Graduate Catalog 2021-2023 Graduate School-Camden Chemistry 160 Program  


The master of science (M.S.) in chemistry program is designed to accommodate a wide variety of students with diverse backgrounds and needs. The department includes several world-renowned chemical research laboratories, where students can learn state-of-the-art techniques from professors and staff. Students may be either full time or part time, as the majority of courses meet in the evening. Many students are already working full time, often for chemical companies, and wish to upgrade their existing qualifications. Others are full time, concentrating on research, and often continuing on to doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) programs after their master's. The program can be completed within approximately two years by full-time students, or longer by part-time students. Courses range from traditional lectures and labs to full research courses. The skills learned by graduate students will enhance their value in industry, government, and academia. Most members of the graduate faculty are affiliated with Ph.D. programs at Rutgers University-New Brunswick (Chemistry) or Rutgers University-Camden (Computational and Integrative Biology) campuses, so students can continue on to Ph.D. work with the same adviser on the Camden campus.

The research interests of the department are diverse and include cheminformatics (computational toxicology, computer-aided drug discovery), biochemistry (DNA nanostructures, enzymology), analytical and physical chemistry (microfluidics, microfabrication, forensic DNA), organic chemistry (synthesis of organofluorine compounds), inorganic chemistry (synthesis and characterization of conducting and electroactive polymers), physical chemistry (adsorption and photocatalysis), and theoretical organic chemistry (reaction mechanisms, molecular modeling). Faculty and students participate in national and international conferences, and scientific results are published in refereed journals. Equipment currently used in the department includes a 400 MHz NMR spectrometer; a triple-quadruple HPLC-MS; a triple quadrupole GC-MS; thermal analysis (TGA and DSC); an atomic force microscope (AFM); infrared, Raman, and confocal fluorescence microscopes; UV-VIS and fluorescent spectrometers; a high-performance computing cluster for molecular modeling and visualization; and multiprocessor Unix computer systems.

Support in the form of teaching and research assistantships is available for students.
