Giving Online to the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry

Our alumni and friends provide essential support for the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry's teaching programs and research enterprise.

The UC Santa Barbara Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry provides exciting research at the cutting edge of modern chemical science. According to a report by Chemical and Engineering News, publications by members of our department were the 7th most cited in the nation among all chemistry departments.

We continue to improve the quality of programs, the caliber of faculty, and the research experience of students by offering fellowships and state of the art facilities for teaching and research in all areas of chemistry including the traditional sub-disciplines (biochemistry, inorganic, materials, organic, physical, and theoretical).
