The University of Turin was founded in 1404 and is one of the most ancient and prestigious Italian Universities. With its 79,000 students and 4,000 academic, administrative and technical staff is one of the largest Italian Universities. Open to international research and training, UNITO carries out scientific research and organizes courses in all disciplines, except for Engineering and Architecture.

The Department of Chemistry was founded in 2012 as results of the union of three previous departments and it is active in several research fields, e.g. materials science, analytical and environmental chemistry, organic and inorganic synthesis, computational chemistry, industrial chemistry and metallurgy. Many facilities are available for the physico-chemical characterization of materials and monitoring the abatement of model pollutants via analytical techniques.
