Synthesis and properties of functional polymers.
Bioinspired polymers, biohybrids, block copolymers, ...


Development of novel bio(amino acid, sugar, terpene)-based polymer materials through "living"/controlled polymerization techniques and post-polymerization modification (click chemistry, etc.). Synthesis of stimuli-responsive or smart polymers, aggregates/colloids (micelles, vesicles, fibers, gels, etc.), hierarchically structured materials (polymer films) and composite materials for potential use in biomedical applications and in materials science.
