    • Core competencies:
    • Fields of research:
      production and characterization of polymer solutions and colloidal dispersions.
      Main topic:
      investigation of intra- and inter-particle interactions within latex molecules, since this is an essential parameter for the stability of polymer dispersions. The interactions can be tuned depending on requirements for further processing and for applications, such as filming, redispersity, breaking strength, and thermo stability.
