The CEC covers fundamental and applied research in disciplines such as chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics. The activities of the CEC are conducted by multidisciplinary teams who create new materials and services through chemical changes in the materials or in chemicals, and, thus, increase the quality of life. Some examples of this are nano scale composites, pharmaceuticals, plastics, fibers, metals and ceramics. Key applications include the development of alternative energy systems, biomedical materials and therapies, strategies for reducing environmental impact and technological advances.
