The special issue “Polymer Morphology and Characterization” of Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics guest edited by Ophelia K. C. Tsui, Shinji Ando and Miriam is now online. We are indebted to all authors for their fabulous contributions! Have a look at the issue here, and also read our editorial here.
The highlight article “Hot water generates crystalline organic materials” is now online at Angewandte Chemie International Edition. Also available in German – read it here: “Heißes Wasser ermöglicht Kristallinität in organischen Materialien“
Today, Miriam gave a talk entitled “Geomimetic Synthesis of Crystalline N-Heterocycle-based Materials” within the “Physikalisch-Chemisches Kolloquium” at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Cologne. Had a great day and excellent discussions – many thanks to Sabrina Disch for the invitation!
Part of the team attended this years Vienna Ball of Sciences in the beautiful town-hall of the city of Vienna. We had a wonderful evening celebrating with fellow Viennese scientists of all disciplines!
Elias started his PhD thesis this week. His project is dealing with the design of high-performance polymers for application in microelectronics. Welcome back Elias! We wish you all the best and lots of exciting discoveries!
We wish all our friends, colleagues and cooperation partners a happy New Year!
Miriam was appointed to the editorial board of iScience, a new interdisciplinary open access journal launched by Cell Press. Looking forward to contributing to this great endeavor!
We are hiring! We have 2 PhD positions in organic synthesis with intended starting date April 1st 2018. Application deadline is January 31st 2018. For more details see the job opening on the sidebar.
We celebrated a wonderful team, exciting science and a great and successful year with great food at our Christmas party. Happy Christmas!
Yesterday, Tobia and Miriam were giving talks in the seminar of the graduate school BIOINTERFACE at TU Wien. Tobia spoke about “Self-assembly of shape- and function-anisotropic colloidal particles” and Miriam’s talk was entitled “Pigments & Polymers – Synthesis and applications of organic high-performance materials”.
