Welcome to the Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry is one of the largest departments at the Royal Institute of Technology. It consists of three divisions: Organic Chemistry, Applied Physical Chemistry and Surface and Corrosion Science.
The Chemistry Department is research intensive, and the research is composed of a mix of curiosity driven projects and projects devoted to solving important industrial and societal problems. Many research projects have a clear interdisciplinary character, and they are often found within the three focus areas Bioactive Molecules, Functional Materials & Surfaces, and Energy & Environment.
Our scientific core is synthesis and characterization of functional molecules, materials and surfaces supported by method and technique development. We further a sustainable society, and make impact on health, energy, and the environment through research and education.
