Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, as a constituent part of the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology was established in 1979 All fundamental chemical and biochemical disciplines are taught by the Department at an undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level including general, analytical, organic and physical chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, as well as modules in applied chemistry and biochemistry, such as green chemistry, food toxicology, protein characterization and purification and biochemical analytics and instrumental analysis. Furthermore, the Department’s teaching staff is also involved in doctoral studies at the Faculty of Science, Faculty of Veterinary Sciences and Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry of the University of Zagreb. Scientific research of the Department is conducted within a large number of research projects, which includes research on the synthesis and isolation of biologically active compounds, their spectroscopic and electrochemical characterisation; studies of metallocene bioconjugates, development of chemometric methods and chemical sensors and the development and application of instrumental techniques for determination of different analytes and their metabolic products in biological material; molecular modelling of diffusion processes through polymer membranes, studies of the fungal cell wall biogenesis and mechanisms of regulation of gene expression in yeast and research on endocrine disruptors in food.
