Chemistry in Groningen is the home of the recipient of 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Ben Feringa, for his research in light-driven rotary molecular motors.
How can I make a flexible solar cell out of organic molecules? Can I build an engine at the molecular level? Can I synthesize life-like artificial systems? Can I cure tuberculosis? You will encounter such questions and many more in the Master's degree programme in Chemistry at the University of Groningen.This selective 2-year programme is taught wholly in English and embedded in an internationally leading research environment. The programme offers a great deal of freedom in topics and has a strong focus on research; students spend 50% of their time in research labs. It is organized along three main specializations:› Advanced Materials
Focus of this specialization lies the chemistry of functional materials, including aspects like material synthesis and self-assembly, supramolecular chemistry, polymer chemistry, structural characterization techniques and functional properties.› Catalysis and Green Chemistry
This specialization focuses on different aspects of catalysis by enzymes as well as synthetic homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts and key industrially relevant transformations.› Chemical Biology (also offers an honours programme)
This specialization brings chemistry to biology and the processes of life using the tools
