A significant source of strength for the Department of Chemistry is the unique concentration of core competence within a range of areas within chemistry, as we belong to both the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering, LTH. This allows for various interdisciplinary research projects and centers and a creative research environment where researchers come together to understand, explain, and improve our world.
