Energy & Environmental Materials Research at the Interface of Ionic Liquids, Inorganic & Solid State Chemistry, Biomineralization, and  Polymer Science

Welcome ​to The LSMC​ @ The University of Potsdam

The Laboratory of Supramolecular & Materials Chemistry focuses on the synthesis, characterization, and application of novel hybrid materials. Two key research topics are bioinspired calcium phosphate hybrid materials and ionic liquid-based functional materials.

We are an international research group and constantly looking for motivated and self-driven coworkers and collaborators. Please feel free to browse the lab website and to contact us for cooperation, open positions, samples, or publications.
