Chemistry

A PhD is the abbreviation for Doctor of philosophy. This degree is a post graduate program delivered to a high level student researcher who has done deep research in a specific field or subject.

Chemistry is often referred to as the central science because it seems to unify the other branches of natural science together, including biology, geology, and physics. Many believe the origins of chemistry to be traced back several thousands of years, to the practice of alchemy.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

The Master in Molecular Nanoscience and Nanotechnology constitutes the period of formation of the Doctorate in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The universities of Valencia, Alicante, Jaume I, La Laguna and Castilla La Mancha participate in this doctorate.

This doctoral program has the Mention to Excellence (MEE2011-0370) granted by the General Secretariat of Universities of the Ministry of Education according to Resolution of October 6, 2011.

In recent years, certain scientific areas such as supramolecular chemistry, molecular biology, surface physics and low temperatures have reached a remarkable development in our country. Research groups have been formed that have achieved an excellent competitive position in the international area. In addition, in a natural way, the very object of research of these disciplines has been converging towards what is called Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Of the strategic importance in ID of these areas, the fact that they have been prioritized in all the National, European and International Programs of all developed countries is a good account. In these physical areas, chemists, biologists, doctors and engineers are in charge of obtaining, manipulating, organizing, studying and taking advantage of the properties of nano-sized objects. Maintaining today and in the future a truly competitive international position in some areas of Nanoscience, however, requires a level of competence that can only be achieved with a thematic focus and with adequate training of research personnel that allows them to acquire the multidisciplinary knowledge that these areas they need....
