Institute of Sustainable
and Environmental
Chemistry (ISEC)

At the Institute of Sustainable and Environmental Chemistry the use of chemical substances and the impact of chemicals and pharmaceuticals on the environment and society is one of the main issues of our research and teaching activities. In this respect two complementary subcategories play a central role, i.e. Environmental Chemistry and Sustainable Chemistry. Environmental Chemistry focuses on studies regarding the environmental fate and behavior of already existing chemicals. Based on this, the Sustainable Chemistry develops solutions that meet the criteria of sustainability.
