University of Paderborn

The chair for Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Paderborn was established in December 2006 under the guidance of Prof. Guido Grundmeier. Based on the contents of research developed in his group at the MPI for Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf since 2001, the focus of the new research group is on interfacial processes, interface chemistry and interfacial forces as essential aspects of the synthesis and properties of functional composite or layerded materials. The mission is to develope in-situ spectroscopic, microscopic and electrochemical techniques for the analysis of interfacial structures.
