Physical Chemistry

Lund University

Our research deals with surface and colloid science.

Research at the Division of Physical Chemistry deals with surface and colloid science with strong links between experiment and theory. This area is approached with a broad perspective ranging from basic considerations of intermolecular interaction and their manifestations in condensed systems to practical consequences in industry and medicine.


Peter Jönsson, Associate Senior Lecturer, was awarded the 2016 Carl Tesdorpf scholarship.
