The key objectives of the "Polymer Chemistry Research Group” (PCR) within the Department of Organic Chemistry in the Faculty of Sciences of Ghent University can be described under the general heading "design, characterization and application of tailor-made, functional polymer structures and polymeric-derived materials".
Three types of research projects can be distinguished:

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.

We hope to welcome you one day to the
beautiful city of Ghent,
home of the spirit of Leo Baekeland.
