The group focuses on polymeric materials, their molecular structure and the resulting macroscopic material properties. In addition, the enhancement of characterisation techniques builds the base of our research. An important part are the synthetic capabilities of the group allowing to structure well-defined polymers with variable composition of monomers and controlled topology. Model systems are a prerequisite to study structure-property relationships.

Knauer Award 2022

Congratulations: The "Herbert Knauer Science Award 2022" goes to Markus Matz from our group!
In the new combined method using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) as a detection method for liquid chromatograph, the resolution of the benchtop NMR instrument used was significantly improved and is therefore an important step in the direction of making NMR detection more tangible for standard laboratories.
