ITCP 04-2023 Bachelor- / Master Thesis: Synthetic functional building blocks for 3d printed structures

  • Institute for Biological Interfaces 3 - Macromolecular Materials (IBG 3), Institute for Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry (ITCP)
  • Fixed-Term
  • Full-time

Your Tasks

3D printing revolutionizes manufacturing and research by enabling the rapid fabrication of complex structures and materials with unprecedented precision. It facilitates prototyping, reducing development timelines and costs, while also enabling customization at scales previously unattainable. Furthermore, it fosters innovation across disciplines like biology, polymer chemistry and materials science for example for the development of medical implants, micro-structured cell environments or printed reactor systems. In this project new functional printable monomeric building blocks will be synthesized for the development of 3D printed gradient structures and porous materials. This is a collaborative project between the ITCP and the IOC.

Your Profile

  • Field of study: Polymer and materials chemistry
  • Basic knowledge of organic and/or polymer synthesis
  • Basic knowledge of analytical methods (NMR, SEC, IR, UV/Vis, DSC, TGA etc.)
