University of Glasgow
School of Chemistry
Joseph Black Building
The University of Glasgow has been named Scottish University of the Year 2018 by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.
The Skabara group is best known for its ability to synthesise novel organic semiconductors. The materials encompass small to large molecules (up to 8,000 Da), well-defined and monodisperse oligomers and polymers prepared by chemical or electrochemical methods. Highlights of their work include organic lasers with several record-breaking lowest thresholds recorded, materials for LiFi, organic solar cells with highly promising efficiencies for molecular species, and field effect transistors with excellent air stability.
The department of chemistry (WE Chemie) the HHU Düsseldorf offers three degree programs, business chemistry, biochemistry, and chemistry. All three programs are very popular with around 200 students enrolling per academic year. One of the research and teaching foci at the school of chemistry is “molecular photonics and excited state-processes (MPESP)”. At the department, there is expertise in inorganic (3 professors), organic (3), physical (5), theoretical (2), polymer (1), and biochemistry (2). One research focus of the department is the interaction between molecules and light as well as resulting processes.
