The department of macromolecular chemistry focusses on the synthesis and develpoment of new polymers and polymeric materials. As the application of polymers is strongly expanding, we participate in the strive for designed (macro)molecules and their applications.

Main focus of research is directed towards tailored synthetic methods (living polymerization methods) and analytical polymer science, with applications in material science, nanotechnology and medicine.Teaching activities are focussed on lectures and courses for the studies of chemistry (bachelor/master) and the master-course Polymer Materials Science (PMS).
