2010 Trends in Macromolecular Chemistry

Author: ChemViews/GDCh

Nachrichten aus der Chemie (the membership magazine of the GDCh) annually publishes trend reports in which authors spot and compile an overview of inspiring work and recent trends in the most important chemical disciplines.

ChemViews gives you an overview of the latest trend report, its authors and the literature collected.

Macromolecular Chemistry 2010
  • Macromolecules can be custom-tailored with orthogonal chemical reactions. Partly biologically inspired concepts combine self-assembly with functionality. The main fields of application of functional macromolecules are electronics and biomedicine.

Robert Luxenhofer, born 1979, studied chemistry at the Technical University Munich, Germany, as well as the University of Sydney, Australia, and did his PhD under Rainer Jordan at the Technical University of Munich. Following a post-doc stay with Alexander V. Kabanov in Omaha, USA, he went to work as a research fellow of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Kaust), Saudi Arabia. He is now developing novel polymeric materials for biomedical applications within the framework of his habilitation at the Technical University Dresden, Germany.

Jürgen Groll, born 1976, studied chemistry at the University of Ulm and did his PhD in 2004 at the RWTH Aachen University, Germany. Subsequently, he worked four years at Sustech in Darmstadt, Germany. At the same time, he established a working group at the Deutsches Wollforschungsinstitut of the RWTH Aachen. Since August 2010, he has held a chair in Functional Materials of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Würzburg, Germany.

His research activities are bioactive surfaces, individualized implants, scaffolds and drug delivery.

Frank Schnieders is the chairman of the Plastics Europe Market Research Group, Brussels, Belguim, and senior manager Market & Competitive Intelligence at Bayer Material Science in Leverkusen, Germany. Since 1990, he has been employed by the chemical industry and a specialist for polymer market research and statistics.

Georg Oenbrink studied and did his PhD in chemistry in Bremen, Germany. In 1987, he started work at Dynamit Nobel and moved, in the course of the acquisition by Hüls, to the Business Line High Performance Polymers, where he has held positions in product management, research & development, and innovations management. Since April 2010, he has headed the section innovations network & communications of Evonik Degussa.
