This community contains the theses and dissertations of the South Dakota State University, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry. The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry offers Master of Science (MS) degrees in Chemistry, and an online Chemistry-Chemical Education specialization for high school teachers, Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in either Chemistry with a specialization in 4 areas:

  • Analytical Chemistry
  • Chemical Education
  • Environmental Chemistry
  • Organic Chemistry

or Biochemistry with a specialization in 2 areas:
  • Biochemistry
  • Biophysical Chemistry

Due to copyright restrictions, the collection contains both open access and university access theses and dissertations. University access items are only available to SDSU users, and on-campus visitors. Non-SDSU users wishing to access restricted materials may request items through their institution’s interlibrary loan services.
