The Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Center of IRAN (CCERCI) is dedicated to excellence in research, and public service. The mission of CCERCI is to advance knowledge and the synergy between research and entrepreneurship through innovation and technological based discovery. Currently, CCERCI  is  comprised  of  5  departments  specializing  in  inorganic,  organic, computational, analytical and oil/gas.

Research  in  these  departments  are  collaborative  and  interdisciplinary.  Overarching goals of ongoing research projects include developing nanotechnology and novel advanced materials for a myriad of applications, and unraveling problems associated with devising new, alternative sources of energy. Research performed by  47 faculty members, graduate and post-doctoral associates resulted in more than 240 national patents and 1000 research articles.
Our reputation as the main chemistry and chemical engineering research center brought outstanding  students  to  learn  more  about  research  and  provides  them  with  the opportunity to work in laboratories under the direction of expert faculty members. CCERCI   houses   a  number   of   multi-disciplinary   and  collaborative   research   labs including  Biocatalysts,  Chemical  Theory,  Organometallic  Catalyst  Design  lab,  Nano- Materials as well as Advance Catalyst research lab.
Our researchers have access to a number of outstanding facilities including the Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) Laboratory and X-Ray Crystallographic laboratory, housed at the CCERCI central lab.
