Contribute to the solution of today’s issues

Chemistry is a key subject area in relation to contributing to solving many societal issues. Regardless of whether you work with optimisation and development of new fuels, sustainable production or medicine, you can get updated on new applications and methods within neutron scattering and X-rays. For example, you can learn how to use the latest research infrastructure within high-quality X-rays at MAX IV or neutron scattering at ESS. You can also learn about modern, advanced synthesis techniques.

Pharmaceuticals, chemistry and teaching

You can be equipped to develop active pharmaceutical ingredients and get updated on knowledge about chemistry or your didactic skills in chemistry experiments relevant to upper secondary school.

Courses can be customised and organised to enhance your employees’ skills within a specific area of your interest and that matches your reality.


Course Level Start date Duration
Advanced Synthetic Techniques
Within this course, you will learn to describe and discuss modern techniques for the synthesis of advanced organic and inorganic small molecules. The focus of the course is to describe and demonstrate techniques for synthesis rather than the preparation of specific molecules. Part of UCPH International Summer Programme.
Master and PhD July 2 weeks
Applications of X-ray and Neutron Scattering in Biology, Chemistry and Physics
The overall goal of this course is to make students aware of the potential of the large-scale MAX-VI and ESS facilities within their own research. The students will, for example, be introduced by top experts to scattering methods, including diffraction, small angle scattering, imaging, and inelastic neutron scattering. Part of UCPH International Summer Programme.
Master August 3 weeks
Aroma - the Chemistry behind Odour
The course describes the role of aroma components in foods, and gives a thorough review of techniques for sampling and analysis of aroma. The relationship between the aroma profile and the sensory quality of a product is an important issue of the course, and includes working with the complexity of the chemical background for odour impressions. Part of UCPH International Summer Programme.
Master July 3 weeks
Reactions and Synthesis in Medicinal Chemistry (KemiMed)
During this course, you will learn how to analyse a complex synthetic problem and plan a feasible synthesis, describe the precise movement of electrons in chemical reactions and understand the influence of the third dimension in chemical transformations. You will also learn how to analyse scientific papers with synthetic problems and spot inconsistencies.
Master September 18 weeks
Heterocyclic Chemistry
During this course, you will learn how to identify differences in reactivities of heterocyclic compounds and be able to demonstrate how heterocyclic compounds can be prepared from simple starting materials. Moreover, you will become able to name both mono- and polycyclic heterocyclic compounds. 
Master February 9 weeks
Organic Chemistry
This course covers the structure and mechanisms in organic chemistry with an emphasis on physical organic chemistry. During the course, you will learn to describe reactions using physical organic chemistry, justify selectivities between products on the basis of physical organic chemistry, and apply the theory to solve practical problems in organic chemistry and elucidate the mechanisms of the desired and undesired reactions.
Master February 18 weeks
Chemistry in the Green Energy Transition (Green Energy)
This course will give you an overview of the green energy transition and the role of chemistry, covering topics such as: "Chemistry of renewable electricity production", "From electrical energy to chemical energy (electrolysis)", "Carbon capture, utilization, and storage", etc. You will for instance learn how to describe the thermodynamic cycles of power plants and heat pumps, the energy flows in the electricity, heat, and gas grids, and the basic economic principles governing energy markets.
Bachelor February 9 weeks
Sustainable Chemistry
This course will give you an introduction to green and sustainable chemistry, covering topics such as: "Atom economy", "Waste management and prevention", "Renewable Resources", etc. You will learn how to measure and control Environmental Performance, Green catalysis and green solvents, Renewable Resources, Emerging Greener Technologies and Alternative Energy Sources and Designing Greener Processes.
Bachelor September 9 weeks
