The Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol), located at the Parc Cientific de la Universitat de València, was founded in 2000 and is recognized internationally as one of the pioneering centres for the research on molecular science.

The ICMol employs more than 100 scientific researchers and houses the most advanced systems for the preparation, characterization and study of molecules and molecular materials.

The aims of the Institute are:

To design and synthesize molecules and molecular assemblies exhibiting useful physical or chemical properties.

To investigate these properties through both experimental and theoretical approaches.

To explore the potential applications of these molecules and materials in different areas of current interest (molecular magnetism, molecular electronics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, catalysis, ...)

The Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) of the University of Valencia was founded in 2000 with the mission of establishing in Valencia a centre of excellence in Molecular Science and Nanoscience.

Located at the Scientific Park of the University of Valencia, the ICMol is formed by ca. 100 researchers and produces most of the high impact research papers of the Univ. of Valencia in Chemistry. In fact, according to the ISIEssential Sciences Indicators data, in Chemistry the Univ. of Valencia is placed among the 50 best Universities on a world scale.

The Institute, with a surface of ca. 3000 m2, is equipped for performing top research in chemistry and, in general, in molecular science.
