Brought to you by the #1 ranked chemistry program in the world. The GOLD Science Fair is administered and delivered by the College of Chemistry at UC Berkeley and is taught by its own globally ranked faculty and graduate students.
Green Chemistry, Materials, Polymers, & Nanoscience, Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry
Professor Arnold’s research is on synthetic inorganic chemistry with the primary goal of making, purifying, and studying molecules and materials that are interesting by virtue of their unusual structures and chemical reactivity.
Physical Chemistry, Chemical Dynamics and Nanostructured Materials
Professor Leone’s research interests include ultrafast laser investigations and soft x-ray probing of valence and core levels, attosecond physics and chemistry, state-resolved collision processes and kinetics investigations, nanoparticle fluorescence intermittency, aerosol chemistry and dynamics, probing with near field optical microscopy, and neutrals imaging.
Professor Cohen’s research focuses on developing and applying new experimental and modeling strategies for understanding the chemical composition of the Earth’s atmosphere now and in the past and for predicting future changes. Current research focuses on the role of nitrogen oxides and on the isotopes of water.
Chemical Biology, Analytical Chemistry
The Nomura Research Group is focused on developing and applying chemical proteomic and metabolomic platforms to identify and pharmacologically target metabolic drivers of human disease.
Plasma Processing, Electronic Materials
Professor Grave’s group focuses on the fundamentals and applications of weakly to partially ionized gases, or plasmas, to technological problems, primarily in the microelectronics industry.
Materials Chemistry, Solid State Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry
Professor Yang’s lab utilizes low-dimensional nanoscopic building blocks to assemble complex architectures with novel chemical and physical properties.
