Christine Dyrager: Targeting hypoxia in cancer therapy and diagnosis
Organic synthesis of luminescent heterocyclic compounds, target-specific imaging agents, and hypoxia-activated prodrugs.
The Quantum Chemistry Group
Electronic structure and dynamics simulations, and modelling of electronic structure theory plays a central role in our research projects. Current applications include simulations of properties of chemiluminescent molecules, photochemistry, and interpretation of spectra. Developments are focused on multi-configurational wave function theoryand their implementations in the software package OpenMolcas.
Halogen bonding, antimalarial natural products from plants in East Africa, paramagnetic ligand tagging technology and development of Metallo-Beta-Lactamase inhibitors to control antibiotic resistance.
Adolf Gogoll: Functional molecular entities
Organic synthesis of functional entities: Supramolecular host-guest systems, photoswitchable peptidomimetics, and monomers for conducting redox polymers. Our main tools are organometallic synthesis, peptide synthesis, and NMR spectroscopy.
Helena Grennberg: Graphene from a molecular perspective
Purification, derivatisation and evaluations of fullerenes and carbon nanotubes; synthesis and chemical functionalization of graphene. Dyes and dyads for electron transfer studies, solar cells and molecular electronics applications. Supramolecular and organometallic chemistry.
Jan Kihlberg: Chemical tools for research and drug discovery beyond traditional drug space
Chemical probes for difficult targets that conquer complex disease.
Lukasz Pilarski: Synthetic methodology, catalysis and green chemistry
The group pursues the development of faster, cheaper and greener organic transformations using C-H activation, arynes and mechanochemistry.
