Welcome to the Inorganic Foundation

The Foundation's main activity is to sponsor visits to the School of Chemistry by eminent scientists, generally from overseas. As a member you will be invited to all lecture courses and seminars that are given under the Foundation's auspices. The Foundation also arranges occasional meetings (and dinners and luncheons) designed to keep members of the Foundation, and particularly those members who are graduates in Inorganic Chemistry, informed about the activities of the University. In this way the Foundation acts as an effective link between the University and some hundreds of graduates.

The School of Chemistry produces a bi-annual newsletter for alumni and friends. Back issues can be found here.

Donations and memberships

The Foundation's main activity is to fund visits to the School of Chemistry by eminent scientists - generally from overseas, whose research is broadly defined to be in the area of inorganic chemistry. As a matter of policy, the Foundation prefers to support extended visits although this preference may be waived in order to bring to Sydney outstanding lecturers who are able to accept the Foundation's invitation for shorter periods.

The Foundation would like to thank members, alumni and friends for their generous donations. A list of donors can be found on the Benefactors page.
