Research Group

Research Focus

The key objectives of the "Polymer Chemistry Research Group” (PCR) within the Department of Organic Chemistry in the Faculty of Sciences of Ghent University can be described under the general heading "design, characterization and application of tailor-made, functional polymer structures and polymeric-derived materials".
Three types of research projects can be distinguished:

  • Development of new polymer structures and synthetic strategies;
  • Exploration of novel polymer functionalization methods;
  • Design of polymer materials for specific applications.

With our highly interdisciplinary approach, we are targeting novel polymer materials, for use in such areas as nanoscience and certain industrial applications by a combination of fine control over the polymer chemistry and an in-depth characterization of the materials generated, in conjunction with numerous academic and corporate partners.
