Inorganic chemistry

The research area Inorganic Chemistry covers three sub-areas:

Center for Catalysis and Sustainable Chemistry (CSC)

The Center for Catalysis and Sustainable Chemistry (CSC) aims to strengthen efforts in refining biomass and waste into more valuable chemicals, fuels and materials, flue gas cleaning by catalysis and selective gas absorption, and sustainable production of chemical products on a large scale. The center's core competencies are currently in alternative flue gas cleaning processes by catalysis and selective gas absorption, which support climate-friendly energy production based on biomass, as well as highly simplified large-scale chemical production.   

Molecular materials

The research in the Molecular Materials section is focused on the design, synthesis, and characterization of well-defined molecular, supramolecular, and polymeric materials from inorganic and organic modules. Our molecular tailoring at the nanoscale level facilitates unique control of chemical as well as physical properties of molecular entities ranging from the single molecule to three-dimensional materials.


The NanoChemistry group is engaged in experimental and theoretical chemical and biological nanoscale and single molecule science. The group focuses on the physicochemical properties of metalloproteins and DNA molecules at the single molecule level and the chemical synthesis of nanomaterials such as nanoparticles and graphene for use as electrocatalysts in fuel cells and biological sensors. The group has particular expertise in the nanoscale and single molecule technologies of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) in aqueous media, theoretical methods, as well as in transmission electron microscopy, electrochemistry, and chemical synthesis of complex metallic nanostructures and graphene
