Welcome to the Molecular Materials group

We are surrounded by smart materials. In fact, we are made out of smart materials, i.e. materials with properties that change when time, temperature, pressure or something else changes. Smart soft materials are the focus of the Molecular Materials group.

One research focuses on the properties of synthetic fibrous hydrogels, which demonstrate great promise in biomedical application and have unique mechanical properties, combining the best of the worlds of synthetic and biological materials. We develop new materials and their biomedical applications.


We are always looking out for talented young scientist, also for Master's and Bachelor's internships. If you are interested in our work, please contact us.


The Molecular Materials group is part of the theme Chemistry of Complex Systems, within the Institute for Molecules and Materials.
