über "Materials Research today - Much ado about Nano?"
im Department Chemie und Biochemie, Baeyer-Hörsaal


Nanotechnology has become the buzzword of the early 21st century. But behind this hype there is a real tremendous number of opportunities to reinvent our words of medicine, electronics and materials. We believe that Nanoscience will deliver an ever-growing toolbox to satisfy the customer needs as well as social demands with new or even revolutionary solutions. In this lecture I will give examples how a big chemical company incorporates this cross-disciplinary approach in

  • Polymer dispersions
  • Materials and skin protection
  • Efficient laundry systems
  • Energy storage
  • more efficient formultions
  • Superhydrophobic systems
  • Better thermal insulation, among other examples
