Owing to scientific achievements of scientists of chemical faculty have developed a number of the Kazakhstan scientific schools: in the field of inorganic chemistry of phosphorus and its compounds (academician A.B.Bekturov), the theory of salt formation and hydrochemistry (B.A.Beremzhanov), theories of solutions (academician M.I.Usanovich), theories of catalysis (academician D.V.Sokolsky), theories of electrochemical processes (academician M.T.Kozlovsky, O.A.Songina), thin organic synthesis (A.S.Sharifkanov), studying of a chemical compound of plants and creations of biologically active substances (T.K.Chumbalov), chemistry of high-molecular compounds (academicians S.R. Rafikov, B.A.Zhubanov, E.M.Shaihutdinov), an ionic exchange and membranetechnologies (academician E.E.Ergozhin), chemical physics (G.I.Ksandopulo, Z.A.Mansurov).
At chemical faculty for carrying out of research works 3 research institutes function:
·The Scientific research institute of new chemical technologies and materials;
The Center of physical and chemical methods of research and analysis;
