REQUIMTE/LAQV, an internationally recognised research Centre in the area of Green Chemistry, is centred in 5 Thematic Lines that define focus areas of research in alignment with the new framework for research of the European Commission, Horizon 2020, with its emphasis on Sustainability,

  • Novel compounds from renewable sources
  • Food quality and safety
  • Analytical control and process automation
  • Clean (Bio)Chemical processes
  • Functional molecules and materials for sustainability

At a more fundamental level REQUIMTE is organized in groups that mirror the basic areas of chemistry:

  • Catalysis and functional and smart materials
  • Engineering of (bio)chemical processes
  • Photochemistry
  • Environmental Chemistry and Health
  • Analytical Chemistry
  • Organic Chemistry
  • Food Science
  • Natural Products

Research conducted in these Groups is organized in an interdisciplinary and integrative way through the 5 Thematic Lines:
