One focus of our work is the synthesis of biocompatible and biodegradable polymers, especially polyesters and polyurethanes based on functional monomer/oligomer building blocks and their further processing into hybrid materials (combined with other, especially inorganic materials).
According to the composition and structure of the monomeric building blocks (linear, branched, star-shaped, mono-, di-, polyfunctional) as well as the reaction control (co-, terpolymerization), completely new combinations of properties can be generated within the polymers. This considerably expands their range of applications and forms the basis for the multifunctionality of polymer materials.
- Synthesis of biodegradable polyesters by ring-opening polymerization of different lactones (e.g. L-, D-, D/L-lactide, p-dioxanone, ε-caprolactone) in the presence of suitable initiators (substrates containing hydroxyl groups)
- Modification of oligomeric esters with di- or triisocyanates and subsequent chain extension with diols or diamines to form controlled degradable polyurethanes or polyureas
- Synthesis of antibacterial polymers with quaternary ammonium groups by conventional and surface-based polymerization processes (e.g. ATR polymerization)
