Hybrid Materials and Green Chemistry
The research group "Hybrid Materials and Green Chemistry" mainly deals with special materials by combining organic and inorganic components for applications in the field of materials and analytics (chromatography) as well as with the development of sustainable and environmentally benign reactions and processes from the "Green Chemistry" realm.
NMR Spectroscopy - Renewable Resources
The working group "NMR Spectroscopy - Renewable Resources" is concerned with the application of this key spectroscopic technique to lignocelluloses and their components. On the one hand, this involves the structural elucidation of organic molecules, the solution structure and solid state structure of lignocelluloses and, on the other hand, the analysis and characterization of complex biopolymers and substance mixtures.
Chemistry of Renewable Nanomaterials
The group “Chemistry of Renewable Nanomaterials (ChemReMat)” is concerned with the preparation of functional nanoparticles from biomass streams. The focus is on the development of sustainable, and selective chemical pathways. In addition, the utilization and upcycling of biomass waste streams and the development of analytical methods to analyze and characterize biocolloids are addressed in research.
