About

The Chemistry - Molecular Sciences programme of the University of Amsterdam, a joint degree programme with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, covers areas in chemistry that traditionally are associated with organic and inorganic chemistry, catalysis, physical chemistry and theoretical chemistry.

Overview

Organic chemistry, biochemistry, and organometallic chemistry are the foundation for a fundamental understanding of the relationship between molecular structure and performance. This field supplies society with the molecules and materials we need for our health, transportation, energy, agriculture and communication. Understanding how molecules function is one of the most important worldwide challenges in chemistry.

What does Molecular Sciences in Amsterdam have to offer me?

The Chemistry - Molecular Sciences programme of the University of Amsterdam covers areas in chemistry that traditionally are associated with organic and inorganic chemistry, catalysis, physical chemistry and theoretical chemistry. The track allows you to become an expert in:

  • designing new compounds with specific properties, often with the aid of computational methods;
  • devising efficient methods for the synthesis of new compounds;
  • developing clean and selective catalysts;
  • using the interaction of light and matter to observe and control chemical and physical processes;
  • developing and applying methods in computational and theoretical chemistry in research of structure, dynamics and function in atomic, (bio)molecular and multi-scale systems.
