The  IMEM GroupOpen in a new window of the Department of Chemical EngineeringOpen in a new window carries out research on macromolecular chemistry and nanoengineering.

It focuses on the following lines of research:

  • Materials innovation, which includes the development of new polymeric materials using experimental and computer simulation techniques, corrosion protection mechanisms and anticorrosion additives for coatings.
  • Molecular engineering, which involves work on molecular modelling in conjunction with pharmaceutical companies. The main topics studied are the development of algorithms for the conformational exploration of peptides and proteins, and for the subsequent analysis of the conformations obtained; the modelling of G protein-coupled receptors in lipid bilayer receptors; the design of combinatorial libraries through an analysis of molecular diversity; and the design of new compounds (rational drug design).
