Our research group is located at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and affiliated with the University of Heidelberg. Our research is focused on the synthesis and application of biofunctional materials, surfaces and nanoparticles.


Lei's and Johannes' Review of that name has just been accepted to Advanced Materials!

Alisa Rosenfeld's review on this matter got published in Applied Bosystems! Congratulations!

Our new Progress Report titled "Slippery Lubricant-Infused Surfaces: Properties and Emerging Applications" can be found online here. It is a "trans-generational" effort with co-authors including current (Dorothea Paulssen) and former members (Junsheng Li and Erica Ueda) of the Pavel Levkin lab!

During his PhD Farid published 5 papers (2 more to follow) and presented work at 9 international conferences. Congratulations on a successful PhD defense!

In this study, inspired by a strong binding ability of natural polyphenols found in plants, we used three different macrocyclic polyphenols, known as resorcin[4]arenes, to modify the surface of different substrates by simple dip-coating into the dilute solution of these compounds. Check it out here!
