Doctoral Programme in Synthetic and Industrial Chemistry

We can affirm that Chemistry is the science which has most contributed to the social welfare of the current day. Its developments, now fully compatible with environmental quality as a result of the advances in the knowledge of its principles and application, invade and protect all the areas of our lives.

The main social issues which contribute to guiding research into chemistry include energy, health, the environment and new materials (including nanotechnology) for application in catalysis, electronics, etc. A whole world dependent on new developments in chemical synthesis: new drugs (analgesics, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs and treatments for diabetes, blood pressure and cancer), new adhesives, new semi-conductor materials, new luminescent products for solar cells, new polymers, LEDs, OLEDs, nanoparticles and enantioselectivity. These words depicting the world around us are, in turn, words which make up the world of synthesis: constructing molecules and materials with the required chemical, medical or physical functionality, studying their structures and properties and doing so with powerful, selective, efficient and clean procedures.

Therefore, the aim of this Doctoral Program in Synthetic and Industrial Chemistry is the training of researchers into Chemical Synthesis who can join research centres and companies which use technology related to the preparation and handling of organic compounds in a broad sense.
