The Department of Chemistry at Rhodes University provides undergraduate and post graduate students the opportunity to learn state of the art techniques and approaches surrounded by a beautiful natural environment. It is a constant reminder to us of the importance of using our knowledge to work towards a sustainable future. Embedded within each of our undergraduate semester courses are principles which enable the students to adopt a principled approach to doing chemistry which is based on the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry.
