Research summary

Membrane Science

We have developed a scalable approach towards large scale fabrication of ultrafiltration polymeric membranes based on a two-step procedure, which exploits soluble template nano-particles allowing the formation of porous polymeric systems.

DNA Labeling

Ancient DNA is preserved in fossils for over thousands to millions of years. This natural way of DNA preservation inspired our encapsulation of DNA into glass particles. Within the particles the DNA is hermetically sealed and protected from severe environmental attack, such as from reactive oxygen spieces and high temperatures.

Magnetic Particle Chemistry

Highly magnetic carbon coated metal nanoparticles can act as semi-heterogeneous support for protecting groups, reagents, transition metal complexes or organocatalysts. Compounds covalently attached to the graphene coating are amenable to rapid separation from the reaction mixture with the aid of an external magnet.

Biomaterials & Living Surfaces

Multifunctionality is a strong demand set to the next generation of materials. One way to cope with this trend is the use of biological materials and systems. The result from this research are biomaterials and living surfaces, which find their way into todays dental materials, agriculture or fiber production.

Research @ the edge of science and industry

Self defening surfaces gained large intrest for their possible application in modern ATM's. The two compartment system reacts upon damage by producing a hot foam. Another projects investigates the next generation of motors by making them soft. 3D printing technology enables the production of lost-wax casted soft silicone pumps, which are driven by combustion.
