New paper published in Journal of Polymer Science!

Our recent publication entitled “Tuning the glass transition of siloxane-based poly(ionic liquid)s towards high ion conductivity” is now available online! This work resulted from a collaboration with Jiayin Yuan’s Lab (Stockholm University). We congratulate all co-authors, especially first author Manuel Reiter, who carried out this impressive work during his Masters thesis. [Read more]

Our quinoxaline manuscript is featured on the front cover of ChemSusChem!

We are delighted to share our latest cover page of  the 8th issue of ChemSusChem which comes with an author profile and accompanies our publication on hydrothermally synthesized quinoxalines. Our manuscript reports the rapid (10 minutes!) hydrothermal synthesis of quinoxalines, a large-scale computational comparison of all existing reported synthetic alternatives, and the testing of the compounds as cell-staining fluorescent dyes.
