REQUIMTE/LAQV, an internationally recognised research Centre in the area of Green Chemistry, is centred in 5 Thematic Lines that define focus areas of research in alignment with the new framework for research of the European Commission, Horizon 2020, with its emphasis on Sustainability:

- Novel compounds from renewable sources

- Food quality and safety

- Analytical control and process automation

- Clean (Bio)Chemical processes

- Functional molecules and materials for sustainability


At a more fundamental level REQUIMTE is organized in groups that mirror the basic areas of chemistry:

- Catalysis and functional and smart materials

- Engineering of (bio)chemical processes

- Photochemistry

- Environmental Chemistry and Health

- Analytical Chemistry

- Organic Chemistry

- Food Science

- Natural Products
