Industrial Chemistry


Industrial chemists are applied scientists, some of whom are engaged in solving problems in forefront research areas, while others are responsible for the successful operations of Australia’s chemical industry. Industrial chemists analyse raw materials, apply computers to the simulation and control of chemical plant and verify the quality of the product. A particularly important activity is the control and management of the environment of industrial processes.

Industrial chemists are capable of fulfilling a multiplicity of roles as research scientists, development chemists, technical representatives and as plant/company managers.
