Welcome to the homepage of the Molecular Materials research group headed by Associate Professor Karl Börjesson at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology at University of Gothenburg.
We construct molecules or molecular based systems that are able to perform highly specialized functions to be used within material sciences. The competence of the group involves both the synthesis of complex molecules and the photophysical/electrical characterization of the molecular based systems. Most often we are working with organic molecules and even though each molecule is able to perform a task on its own, our aim is not to use the single molecules but ensembles of molecules to create materials for the future.
Karl Börjesson, group leader
