Virtual talks in May and June!

Miriam gave several online talks in June and is grateful to the respective hosts and organizers, as well as audiences for great discussions! A big thank you to the Austrian Young Chemists Association, JCF (Talk: “Nothing but water: Hydrothermal synthesis of N-Heterocycle-based materials”, May 3rd, 2021), the Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry at the University of Nottingham (Talk: “Synthesis of materials rich in aromatics and heterocyclics using water and heat“, June 10th, 2021), the Chemistry Department of King’s College London (Talk: “Hydrothermal and solid-state synthesis of heterocycle-based materials and small molecules“, June 16th, 2021), and the Advanced Materials Research Group at the faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham (Talk: “From All-Organic Salts To High-Performance Materials“, June 28th, 2021)!  [Read more]

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.

New paper on epoxy reinforced with crystalline polyimide particles

We just  published the first example of a composite reinforced with crystalline polyimide particles in Materials Advances. The high crystallinity of the polyimide particles was achieved by hydrothermal polymerization. This publication resulted from  a collaboration with Thomas Konneger’s lab and is entitled “High modulus polyimide particle-reinforcement of epoxy composites” . [Read more]
