Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, as a constituent part of the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology was established in 1979. The department organizes lectures in all fundamental chemical and biochemical disciplines at undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels including general, analytical, organic and physical chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, as well as courses in applied chemistry and biochemistry, such as green chemistry, food toxicology, methods for separation and filtration proteins and biochemical analytics and instrumental analysis. Department teaching staff is also involved in PhD studies at the Faculty of Science, Faculty of Veterinary Sciences and Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry at the University of Zagreb. Teaching staff members are leaders of a number of scientific projects, including research on the synthesis and isolation of biologically active compounds, their spectroscopic and electrochemical characterization, studies of metallocene bioconjugates, development of chemometric methods and chemical sensors for determination of different analytes, development and application of instrumental techniques for determination of different analytes and their metabolic products in complex biological material, molecular modelling of diffusion processes through polymeric membranes, studies of the fungal cell wall biogenesis and mechanisms of regulation of gene expression in yeast and endocrine disruptors from food. Research activities are carried out in collaboration with research groups from prominent EU Universities. The teaching staff of the Department is also involved in EU research projects including the development of chemical sensors for food quality and environmental pollution monitoring and analytical methods for authentication of foodstuff on molecular level as well as research project in cooperation with industry.
