History

The origins of the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry can be traced to 1796 when chemistry instruction was first provided at Anderson's Institution (antecedent of the University of Strathclyde). At that time, chemistry was taught as an adjunct to medicine or natural philosophy, and it was not until 1830 that the first independent Professor of Chemistry was appointed. Following this, the Young Chair of Technical Chemistry was established in 1870. Chemistry and Chemical Technology then operated as two separate departments, until 1964 when they merged to form the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry.
