Human existence is, to a large extent, defined by the materials we use, a fact that is evident in the way we categorize parts of human history into periods such as the Stone Age or the Bronze Age.
What are the new materials that will enable technological leaps in the next few years? What aspects of materials are most interesting to researchers today? And how does material science shape our future?
The 2015 Alf de Ruvo scholarship, worth SEK 500,000, has been awarded to Dr. Andreas Fall for his comprehensive mapping of colloid chemistry interactions in nanocellulose systems, which may contribute to the development of entirely new materials.
The Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK) at Stockholm University is internationally renowned for developing and characterizing properties and structures of modern materials, where solid-state NMR represents one of the characterization techniques.
In June 1994 Kemilärarnas Resurscentrum, KRC got an assignment from the Swedish government to start a Centre supporting activities of chemistry teachers in Swedish compulsory and upper-secondary schools. The general aim of the Centre is to promote and stimulate interesting and up-to-date teaching of chemistry in Swedish schools.
The Centre is supported by Stockholm university.
The Chemistry Section at Stockholm University consists of five chemistry departments, each of which conducts successful education and research within their field. In total around 500, researchers, teachers, research students and other personnel are active in making the section successful.
