Metrohm Foundation endowed professorship
The Metrohm Foundation endowed professorship focuses on the synthesis of stationary phases for chromatography, and surface functionalisation and characterisation.
We are further interested in applying the techniques that we are familiar with in other areas; for example hydrophilisation, biocompatibilisation and introduction of charges onto membranes and medical devices.
High performance materials combine the advantages of several different materials. However, due to several synthesis steps, this requires a lot of labour. We are developing an apparatus that fully automates the typical reaction steps found in particle surface functionalisations.
It is rare for a single material to provide the ideal properties for an application. We research and develop new combinations of support materials and multi-layered coatings to solve problems in chemistry, material science and life sciences
