Faculty and research

The research at the School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health spans over a wide range of topics, such as the development of solar and fuel cells as well as other environmentally friendly energy sources, how to store nuclear waste in a safe way, the design of novel polymers for use in the medical industry, how to protect metal surfaces against corrosion, the use of natural materials in new products, and how friction can be explained on a molecular level, among many other research projects.

At the Department of Chemistry, both fundamental and industrially related research is carried out, and many projects have an interdisciplinary character. Three important research areas at the department are Energy & Environment, Functional Materials & Surfaces, and Bioactive molecules.
