This is a junior research group (W1) initiated in August 2010.
We are part of the Laboratory of Organic and Macromolecular Chemistry (IOMC, Polymer-based Nanoobjects Group) and the Jena Center of Soft Matter (JCSM, founded in November 2010) within the Chemistry and Earth Sciences Faculty of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena.
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.
