Faculty of Chemistry - our research profile

Switch to main content of the section

The Faculty of Chemistry is characterized by interdisciplinary research, which is typical for Bielefeld University. Researchers in the research area Molecule-based Materials cooperate with the department of Physics.

The research area Life Science Chemistry is strengthened by cooperation with the Faculty of Biology, the Faculty of Technology and the CeBiTec.

The „Center for Molecular Materials“ CM2 is an academic department with groups from chemistry and physics (coordinator B.Hoge), which aims at connections between technical know-how of industrial partners and basic research at the university.

In addition, each group is involved in national and international research cooperations.

    Life Science Chemistry

    Protein crystallography is used and sulfatases, lysosomal hydrolases and membrane transport are studied in the research area Life Science Chemistry. An additional focus are bioorganic and biocatalytic topics in organic chemistry groups, which are also investigated by biochemistry groups within the Faculty of Chemistry.
