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.

Teaching in the summer semester 2022
All information about teaching in the summer semester 2022 in the working group of Prof. Wilhelm you will find here summarized.
Or you can have a look at the overview of teaching in the working group of Wilhelm, where you will find all current and all possible events.
You are interested in synthesis of polymers, characterisation methods or even the development of such methods? You want to work in an interdisplinary group?
In the current issue of the online magazine of Wiley Publication, the work of our research group on combined methods is presented in two articles, first the general work on combined methods in "Passion for Polymers" and second the newsest version of our combined methods, NMR-HPLC coupling, in "Chemically sensitive detection in HPLC".
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.
Dr. Matthias Heck received an award for his poster at EuPoC in Trento, Italy, May 2022.

Jan 2022: Prof. Dr. Manfred Wilhelm has been appointed as a member of the Academy of Sciences in Mainz!
The Academy of Sciences and Literature, Mainz, founded in 1949, offers its members a place for dialogue that focuses on interdisciplinary exchange, as well as the opportunity to realise long-term projects that serve basic research.
