Research Overview

Reactivity of Solids

  • Mechanistic studies with dynamic in-situ methods
  • Thermochemical and thermodynamic characterization of solids
  • Synthesis of solids with defined morphological properties
  • Solvent-free syntheses

Application of Synchroton Radiation Methods

  • High-resolution diffraction
  • X-ray absorption spectroscopy
  • Small-angle scattering, simultaneous techniques

Development and Application of Biomaterials

  • Microstructured polymers
  • Calcium phosphate ceramics (e.g. hydroxyapatite), in close collaboration with physicians from trauma surgery
  • Maxillofacial surgery
  • Jaw surgery

Biometric Crystallization of Inorganic Materials

  • Calcium phosphates, calcium carbonate, earth alkaline sulphates
  • Studies of Biogenic Minerals from Biology and Medicine ("biomineralisation" and pathological crystallisation)

Controlled Drug Release out of Biodegradable Polymers
