Synthesis of functionalized [2.2]paracyclophanes

Synthesis of functionalized precursor molecules for CVD polymerisation, [2.2]paracyclophanes, with a broad variety of functional groups for post-modification in diverse applications.

Synthesis of zwitterionic monomers and controlled polymerization

We work on the synthesis of functional monomers and polymers using controlled polymerization techniques. Produced polymers are investigated and evaluated for biomedical applications.

Specifically, zwitterionic polymer brushes are utilized as anti-fouling materials to prevent non specific adsorption of biomolecules.
