Organisation profile

The Section of Physical and Biophysical Chemistry comprises activities within pure and applied physical chemistry. It covers both microscopic atomic-level descriptions and the macroscopic thermodynamic approach. Common themes are determination of structure and behaviour of small to medium-sized molecules as well as proteins, and many projects involve spectroscopy, scattering, and computer modelling.

The research areas are Biophysical and Biomedicinal Chemistry, IR, THz, and Raman Spectroscopy, High Pressure Phase Behaviour for Oil and Gas Production, Protein and X-ray Crystallography, Polymers and Functional Interfaces; Theoretical, Computational, and Femtochemistry.
