The areas of organic synthesis, new organic reactions, organometallic reactions, and bioorganic
and biological chemistry are strongly represented in the research projects of the chemistry faculty at Texas A&M.
Other research areas include marcomolecular and polymer chemistry, catalysis, and natural products.
The combination of instrumentation available through the Department and individual research groups is among the best in the country for organic and bioorganic research. Several high field multinuclear NMR spectrometers, mass spectrometers, and x-ray diffractometers are available for access. A variety of molecular graphics systems are routinely used by students.
