Polymers and materials for healthcare, sustainability and energy

Our laboratory covers a range of research fields among organic synthesis, macromolecular chemistry, supra-molecular chemistry, combinatorial research, material research, advanced characterization and nanoscience.

The mission of the laboratory is to combine bottom-up and top-down approaches to functional materials from the nanoscopic to the mesoscopic length scale, combined with addressable (smart) features such as self-healing systems and responsive properties. Applications both in the field of photonics/optics as well as life science are currently targeted.

The Schubert Group is based at the Faculty for Chemistry and Earth Sciences of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena and participates in the Jena Center for Soft Matter (JCSM)de, the Center for Energy and Environmental Chemistry Jena (CEEC Jena)de and the Collaborative Research Center 1278 PolyTargetde.
