Vision & Mission
We believe that both lignins and tannins hold a yet unexploited potential as oligomeric and polymeric building blocks that qualifies them as one of the leading renewable materials to overcome dependence from fossil-based resources.
Our core scientific research interests lie in the fields of sustainable chemistry and materials on the basis of natural polyphenols, i.e., lignins and tannins.
Our work leads to significant contributions regarding the structural elucidation of natural polyphenols, their chemical and biotechnological oxidative valorisation and the realisation of (performance) materials down to the nano-scale based on both, natural and derivatised lignins and tannins.
