The Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK) has about 150 employees that include about 50 PhD students and 30 postdoctoral fellows/researchers. We are a group of internationally leading scientists that focus on teaching chemistry, developing materials for a sustainable society and developing methods for advanced chemical and structural characterisation of materials.
