Organisation profile

The Chemistry Research Group conducts research in fundamental and applied chemistry often in close collaboration with biologists and physicists. Common to all activities is an interest in modeling chemical processes often with an experimental approach and testing. The research group covers a broad spectrum of chemical disciplines and works within organic, inorganic, analytical and bioorganic chemistry. Key areas of interest are:

  • Catalysis (inorganic catalysts and hydrolytic enzymes)
  • Energy (solar cell chemistry, electrochemistry and hydrogen storage)
  • Complex aqueous systems (binding thermodynamics and micellization)
  • Organic synthesis (bioactive compounds, drug delivery systems)
  • Analytical chemistry (chromatography and mass spectrometry methods, sensor development and multivariate analysis)
  • Biophysical and biological chemistry (gelation and hydrogen bonding, protein stability and structure)

Many research projects are conducted in close collaboration with internal and external academic partners. Furthermore, the Chemistry research group also has long-standing collaborations with major Danish and international private companies.
