Three types of research projects can be distinguished:
- Development of new polymer structures and synthetic strategies;
- Exploration of novel polymer functionalization methods;
- Design of polymer materials for specific applications.
With our highly interdisciplinary approach, we are targeting novel polymer materials, for use in such areas as nanoscience and certain industrial applications by a combination of fine control over the polymer chemistry and an in-depth characterization of the materials generated, in conjunction with numerous academic and corporate partners.
A Technology Developer, operating in the fields of our research, is strongly involved in the development of early-stage technologies and the set-up of long-standing interactions with corporate partners.
By its research activities and equipment facilities, the PCR-group has the intention to provide students and researchers with a broad scope of the design and understanding of the properties of polymeric materials.
