The Department of Chemical Sciences at Ariel University was established in 2003 and is the youngest chemistry department among the Israeli higher education institutions.
Despite its young age, the department already has built a strong multidisciplinary character. Its core activities are designed to rationally employ the tools of advanced organic and inorganic synthesis in modern biochemical, pharmacological and advanced material strategies for the development of new biologically active compounds as well as novel and state-of-the-art technologies in drug discovery, material science and green chemistry.
