Chemistry research groups in Kenya
IPICS supports two research groups at the Department of Chemistry at University of Nairobi:
- Inorganic chemistry research group
- Natural products chemistry research towards management of tropical diseases
Inorganic Chemistry Research Group-Synthesis and characterization of catalytic molecules
The overall objective of the group is to to strengthen the capacity and quality of inorganic chemistry research at University of Nairobi in order to address national, regional and global priority needs for human development and environmental health protection.
