Welcome to the Institute
The Institute for Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry consits of four research groups, two of them working in Chemical Technology, two in Polymer Chemistry. The cooperative direction is formed by Prof. Barner-Kowollik, Prof. Deutschmann (speaker), Prof. Grunwaldt und Prof. Willhelm (ass. speaker).
The main research topics in Chemical technology are optimization of catalytical processes and characterization of catalysts. In Polymer science, new methods of polymer synthesis for modern materials as well as the improvement and the devolpment of characterization methods are topics of research.
Associated to the institute is the professorship Applied Spectroscopy (Prof. Clemens Heske) working on the characterization of surfaces and interfaces and the professorship Applied Computational Catalysis (Prof. Studt) based in Campus Nord.
