Dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers

Prof. Brigitte Voit, Dr. Dietmar Appelhans

    • Application of new synthesis methods to build up branched architectures in one or more steps, precise adjustment of branching density and nature of end groups
    • Exploitation of the characteristics profile determined through branching and increased functionality in applications such as reactive blends (e.g. in coatings), as functional materials in thin films or for the build up of nanohybrid materials
    • Exploitation of dendritic polymers in biomedical applications with special emphasis in optimizing biocompatibility e.g. through introduction of sugar endgroups (glycodendrimers) and to induce and understand specific biological interactions
