We are part of the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Macromolecular Chemistry de (IOMC) and the Jena Center of Soft Matter de (JCSM, founded in November 2010) within the Chemistry and Earth Sciences Faculty of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. We are also part of the collaborative research centers "PolyTarget" (SFB 1278 - from July 2017) and "CataLight" (TRR 234 - from July 2018 - can also be followed on twitter) and the DFG Forschergruppe "Adaptive Polymergele mit kontrollierter Netzwerkstruktur" (FOR2811, since 2019).
We are interested in the self-assembly and application of polymeric materials at different length scales from 1 nm up to several µm. This involves the synthesis and characterization of innovative and functional polymers and block copolymers. To achieve this, we utilize different polymerization techniques, ranging from conventional free radical to ionic methods.
Our Research activities have been featured in one Nano & Materials Technology Issue of ResearchMedia. The article can be accessed here.
You find us located in Lessingstraße 8, 1st floor (Offices) and 2nd/3rd floor (Laboratories).
