In the focus of our studies in the field of polymer research is the better understanding of macroscopic interfacial phenomena (adhesion, wetting, adsorption) and their molecular origins. The findings from the comprehensive characterization of these interfacial phenomena are aimed at innovative surface design and at the integration in recent technologies resulting in improved product properties in the field of multi-component polymeric systems, adhesion joints, coatings, composites and blends.
