Chemistry (MSc)

1. General Information

Our department  in which traditional and modern methods are used to give  knowledge and skills on  basic chemistry in courses and laboratories and  with the increased number of elective courses it is aimed to ensure that students have  a broader perspective. Our students are receiving  current academic and vocational basic training in the field of chemistry and following graduation they can work as  academic and professional researchers, practitioners in industrial enterprises or  educators.

Our academic staffs who have  international scientific connections and researches realised many projects supported by ESOGU, TUBITAK and industrial establisments and  many of them are still  progressing along with graduate programs. Major fields of study:

(i)                   Ther synthesis and characterisation of new type water-soluble surface active block copolymers,

(ii)                 Experimental and theoretical studies on some heterocyclic compounds,

(iii)              Biotechnological applications of fungal cultures (biosorptions and biotransformations),

(iv)              Investigation of inhibiting effects of some organic materials on the corrosion of metals,

(v)                 Synthesis and investigation the activities of some  heterocyclic and heteroaromatic compounds having medical importance,

(vi)              Determination of properties of alunite and clay minerals and researches on their applications.

   Our department has many award-winning scientific activities in the field of science. Awards won by the department:

Science prize of 2008 by Popular Science Magazine: To Prof. Dr. Vural Bütün for his national and international contributions to the science by Grand Jury of Popular Science Magazine.


Tunç Savaşçı Polymer Science and Technology Award of 2006 : To Prof. Dr. Vural Bütün for his outstanding contributions to polymer science and technology  by  Polymer Science and Technology Association of Turkey.

PAGEV Plastic Technology 2005 First Prize : Prof. Dr. Vural Bütün was awarded for his project titled as “Synthesis and characterization of a new type schizophrenic ABC triblock copolymer and synthesis of a new type cross-linked miscelles”.

TUBITAK-TWAS Encouragement Award of 2004  :  Prof. Dr. Vural Bütün was awarded for his high-quality studies in the field of Chemistry on  a new type of water-soluble copolymer and synthesis and characterization of SCL nanospheres by TUBITAK and TWAS.

TÜBA-GEBİP Award of  2004 : Prof. Dr. Vural Bütün was awarded for his high-quality studies of international level  on Polymer Chemistry by Academy of Sciences of Turkey.
