Working during the extraordinary time of a COVID-19 pandemic

Our research group has adapted to the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic and all research students and Masters have returned stepwise and are working now regularly in the lab. Some are finishing their pending papers or thesis. We also have regular research seminars and literature discussion meetings in Zoom/Skype every week. I take this opportunity to thank all my group members for having the patience and understanding the situation and managing things efficiently in an extraordinary time. We hope to sit together and discuss things in person soon.

Dominic and Alexander publish a joint paper in Electrochimica Acta on extended DRT analysis of SPEs

In a joint research work within BayBATT, we published detailed DRT analysis of Nyquist plots obtained from Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy of solid electrolytes to understand the bulk as well as interface impedance as a function of the nature of electrolytes varying from single-ion conductor polymer to polymer bottle brushes and ceramic electrolytes, all of which are interesting candidates for a solvent-free Li-metal anode battery

Mukundan ThelakkatWelcome to Applied Functional Polymers group at University of Bayreuth!

We are an interdisciplinary group covering fields of Chemistry, Physics and Material Science.

Our objectives are

  • to design and develop novel tailor made functional molecules, polymers and block copolymers,
  • to combine organics with other functional inorganics to get hybrid systems and
  • to contribute conceptually to solar energy conversion and storage.

Our tools include diverse thin film preparation techniques, self-assembly and device preparation and characterization in addition to elaborate synthetic methods.
