Welcome to Chemical Society of Nigeria

Welcome to Chemical Society of Nigeria

The Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN) was founded in 1971. It is the umbrella body of all Chemists in Nigeria which, among other things, seeks to protect the professional interest of chemists as well as promote the propagation, study and practice of the science of chemistry in Nigeria. The Society currently has its branches (called “Chapters”) in about thirty states across the country.

An attempt at tracing the history of the CSN will be incomplete without simultaneously tracing the history of chemistry education and practice in Nigeria.

Records have it that the British colonial government in 1931 established the Department of Government Chemists / Laboratory, initially to analyze water and other consumables available then and advice the Government on their safety. But beyond the activities that took place in the said Department / Laboratory, not much was known about the chemistry profession in Nigeria; nor was any attempt made by chemists themselves at that time to come together to form a professional association that would work for and protect their common interest.

Later on in 1948, the University College, Ibadan, was established as a College of the University of London and one of the first departments in its Faculty of Science was the Department of Chemistry. Suffice is to say that the aforementioned Department of Government Chemist and the Chemistry Department of the University of Ibadan were the initial centres of Chemistry activities in Nigeria.
