Why study Molecular Chemistry in Nijmegen?

The Master's specialisation Molecular Chemistry lies at the heart of chemistry, where chemists synthesise 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.


Why study Molecular Chemistry?

  • The Institute of Molecules and Materials (IMM) at Radboud University hosts a large and internationally renowned cluster of molecular chemistry groups, where you will participate in challenging research projects.
  • We have close contact with top research groups elsewhere in the world, which makes it possible to do your internship at for example Oxford, Princeton or Berkeley University.
  • Among the teaching staff are two ERC advanced grant and two ERC starting grant winners.
  • Teaching takes place in small groups and in a stimulating, personal setting.
