We create nano-structured and functional materials with specific properties which are applied in various life sciences fields, such as filtration and tissue cultures. The Institute benefits from a Metrohm Foundation endowed professorship that facilitates in-depth, competence-building research in the field of new materials and functional surfaces, independently of time-limited projects.
The focus of the section of Functional Materials and Nanotechnology is the modification and analysis of surfaces and the development of applications in the following areas of chemistry and biology
The Section of Polymer Chemistry focuses on the synthesis, functionalization, and characterization of nanostructured polymeric materials.
Please visit our german website to get more information about the section of Basics Chemistry.
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.
