Welcome to the Department of Chemistry!
Studying at the UOC Department of Chemistry will give you more than one qualification upon graduation. You will be studying in the best Chemistry department in Greece and taught by professors whose current cutting edge research finds wide-range applications worldwide. You will be given the opportunity to have hands-on experience in our state-of-the art laboratories.
Back in 1985, the department had a handful of students, limited equipment power or prestige, but a determined mission: "To advance learning and perpetuate it to posterity". That bold vision has guided our department for the past 30 years and made it the respectable centre of research and learning that it is today.
In April 2011, the Department of Chemistry was ranked first (1st) in Greece by external Quality Assessment Audit. It is our collective efforts that today make this university such a vibrant place to live, to learn, to work, and to explore.
Have a look at our Life on Campus magazine and take a peek at our Outreach Video! The Department of Chemistry coordinates a wide range of activities to highlight the benefits of higher education in an interesting, engaging and fun way!

"Water Molecules Gating a Photoinduced One Electron Two Protons Transfer in a Tyr/His model of Photosystem II"
Our study provides an unprecedented example of a light‐induced electron‐transfer process in a TyrZ/His190 model of photosystem II, evidencing the movement of both the phenol and imidazole protons along an isoenergetic pathway.

Dear Dr Sircoglou,
According to the evaluation of referees the results reported in your Communication are “highly important” or even “very important”. Less than 10% of our manuscripts receive such a positive review. We recommend that you tell the publicity/press department of your institute about your publication and the excellent reviews that it has received; a press release could be possible. Furthermore, you are welcome to submit graphical material suitable for display on the outside or inside covers of Angewandte Chemie. Manuscripts that have received such positive recommendations are favored in our selection process. Since there is a close competition for the cover, it is absolutely necessary that the proposal fits our layout.
