Academic, scientific or professional interest: Chemistry is the science that studies the composition. synthesis, properties, behaviour and reactivity of the matter. It focuses on properties of material compounds of any kind, inorganic, organic and biological and also on the aspects of change and reactivity. It includes the research of the structures and mechanisms of chemical transformations and the synthesis of new compounds, as well as the development of new tools for the analysis. With its permanent ability for innovation it has always had a great impact in the progress, developing products and technologies which influence all the fields of activity of the human being. The Science of Chemistry plays a very important role in protecting health and environment, in the improvement of hygiene and sanitary conditions, in the provision and guarantee of food and in the manufacturing of new and cheaper materials that improve the quality of our lives. Its future is specially focused on four fields of general interest: life, environment including natural disasters, nanomaterials and energy. The present super-specialisation can be a problem to give an answer to our needs, as the mentioned fields are multidisciplinary and have to be addressed like that. To solve this situation the scientist has to be open-minded towards other sciences and scientific education has to be more broad. The Master’s Degree in Chemistry aims at becoming a professional chemist in the professional fields of specialisation: Academic, Research and Industrial. It aims at showing how the problems are dealt with and how a solution is provided from the point of view of the different basic specialities: analytics, physics, organics and inorganics and how multidisciplinarity is needed among the own basic specialities of chemistry and the other sciences in order to supplement and progress in raising awareness.
