Mukundan ThelakkatWelcome to Applied Functional Polymers group at University of Bayreuth!

We are an interdisciplinary group covering fields of Chemistry, Physics and Material Science.

Our objectives are

  • to design and develop novel tailor made functional molecules, polymers and block copolymers,
  • to combine organics with other functional inorganics to get hybrid systems and
  • to contribute conceptually to solar energy conversion and storage.

Our tools include diverse thin film preparation techniques, self-assembly and device preparation and characterization in addition to elaborate synthetic methods.
