Welcome 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.
