Course content

Molecular chemistry is a creative science, where chemists synthesize molecules with new biological or physical properties to address scientific or societal challenges. Think of new catalytic conversions, lead compounds for future medicines or the next generation of conducting polymers. Working with chemical structures the possibilities are endless: in principle, every molecule can be made. The challenge is to adapt the 3D-structure to the desired properties and design an efficient synthesis method.

The specialisation in Molecular Chemistry is closely connected to the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM), which hosts world-class research groups and a state-of-the-art research infrastructure. In your internships, you can conduct independent research at IMM, under personal guidance of a researcher. Not seldom this leads to a scientific publication with you as a co-author.

With this practical experience and your in-depth knowledge of the design, synthesis and characterization of molecular structures, you’ll make an excellent researcher. Almost half of our students take up a PhD position after graduating. However, you can also choose to apply your chemistry knowledge in the chemical industry, a spin-off company or a governmental organisation.

* This Master's is a specialisation of the Master's in Chemistry.
