Advanced Hybrid & Inorganic Nanomaterials Research at the Interface of Inorganic & Solid State Chemistry, Biomineralization, Ionic Liquids, 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.

First News of the Year: 2020 has been so busy that there was no time left for updating the news site! Obviously we have been working despite the fact that I was too slow with my updates. A few highlights:

Frederike is now Dr. Frederike Lehmann. She successfully defended her PhD in a somewhat spooky Corona-regulated defense. Congratulations, Frau Doktor!

Inga has turned in her Masters thesis and will soon have the first Video-Masters-Defense of the lab!

The group is using the time to prepare lots of manuscripts and proposals - so look forward to seeing interesting stuff coming from the group in the near future.

The group would also like to reach out to everyone who is making things possible. Thanks for the continued effort of the University and other staff who are running important infrastructure for everyone's benefit!
