Our work includes a wide spectrum of areas within Chemistry. We are primarily focused on applied research, i.e., research that should solve a societal problem and is ready to be used immediately or in the near future.

Our research areas 

Examples of applications for our research are fossil free fuel and energy systems, electrical devices, health and technology, utilization of fibers and forest materials and different forms of catalysis.
