The members of our international team have different backgrounds ranging from polymer science, colloid chemistry, synthetic chemistry, chemical technology to chemical engineering. Our work is concerned with advanced materials, specifically high-performance polymers, high-performance dyes, covalent organic frameworks and inorganic-organic hybrid materials. We concentrate on the development of novel synthetic methods that are both benign and improve the final materials properties. Our work covers synthesis of small molecules, crystallization and crystallography, development of non-classical syntheses such as hydrothermal and solid-state routes, and bulk materials synthesis.
