Robert was born in Potsdam in 1986 and soon moved to Bernburg, a small town in Saxony-Anhalt, where he grew up. During his school years his interest in chemistry aroused. So after passing his A-levels in 2006 he started studying Chemistry in Jena. Besides chemistry he likes to play badminton and cook with friends.

Functionalized PEO-based block copolymers:

We are interested in the synthesis of poly(ethylene oxide)-block-poly(furfuryl glycidyl ether) (PEO-b-PFGE) block copolymers of different molar mass and weight fractions. The furfuryl functionality allows Diels-Alder cycloaddition reactions for crosslinking and further functionalization. Differences in morphology are investigated using several techniques such as small and wide angle X-ray scattering or transmission electron microscopy in bulk films. One straightforward applications of such materials are robust, nanostructured and reversibly crosslinkable coatings.
