Nanomaterials Science Judged Best in the Field
The Dutch Master's Selection Guide (Keuzegids Masters 2016) ranked Utrecht University's Nanomaterials Science programme as the best in the field of Chemistry in the Netherlands. Students chose the Master's programme Nanomaterials Science at Utrecht University as the best programme in the field in the yearly review 'Beste studies' by Elsevier.
Functional materials, organic and inorganic, play an important role in much of modern physics, chemistry and technology.
In this field there is an obvious trend towards systems which operate on the nanoscale. This includes the exciting areas of nanoscience, nanotechnology and catalysis: the fundamental units such as macromolecules, quantum structures and catalysts have dimensions on the nanometre scale. The challenges in this area of science include: * the synthesis of functional units and their manipulation to form novel and 'artificial' solids; * the study of fundamental processes in (nano)structured systems and the development of theory and models to explain new phenomena; * the elucidation of structure-property relations; * materials engineering and the application of materials in improved and novel devices. * the elucidation of structure-property relations; * materials engineering and the application of materials in improved and novel devices.
