Functional materials

Functional materials research area at the Department of Chemistry combines cross disciplinary the theories and phenomena of physical, inorganic, and materials chemistry. The main objective of the research is the fundamental understanding of structure-property relationship of functional materials that can be applied for controlled modification of their physico-chemical properties. Molecular modelling and experimental chemistry also provide solutions for society and industry needs. Examples of recent research topics cover novel efficient light producing materials, emission control of energy production, and functional surfaces.
