The Department of Chemistry is part of the Science Faculty, one of 7 Faculties of the University of Basel. The Department was founded in 1989 by the merger of three institutes, the Institutes of Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. These research areas are still located in different buildings and, hence, have different addresses. Analytical Chemistry has been added since as an additional research area. All important decisions for research and education are, however, taken within the Department. Its "parliament", the Departementskonferenz, is the legislative body and makes the "laws". The Geschäftsleitender Ausschuss, the Forschungsausschuss and the Unterrichtsausschuss are its executives.
