The Head of the Department:
Prof. Frankica Kapor, PhD

The area of scientific interest and exploration of the members of the Chemistry department are: corrosion and the protection of metals using ecologically acceptable corrosion inhibitors, corrosion in concrete, corrosion during oil production, tracking organic matter in precipitations, physical and chemical processes in interfaces, the application of electrochemical methods in the determination and characterization of organic matter and interaction with trace elements in natural water systems and chemical characterization of coal.
The Department’s employees participate in scientific research conducted at the Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering’s scientific projects; they collaborate with scientists working at other institutions such as: the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, the Faculty of Metallurgy, The Ruđer Bošković Institute and other scientists.
Members of the Department published articles in the „International Journal of Electrochemical Science”,  „Journal of solid state electrochemistry” and „Materialwissenschaft und werkstofftechnik“.

The Department was awarded two financial grants for exploration provided by the University of Zagreb for the projects entitled “Natural organic corrosion inhibitors ” and “Characterization of mining waters and estimation of possible impact on surface and groundwater”.
Also, the Department is collaborating on the projects entitled: “Functionalization of active electrode materials for supercondensers”, led by scientists from the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology. One member of the Department is a collaborator on the project supported by the Croatian Science. A member of the Department is an active researcher of the Croatian Science Foundation project ″The Sulphur and Carbon Dynamics in the Sea and Fresh-Water Environment″ (IP-11-2013-1205 SPHERE).
