Project description

In this research project, the recently developed TAD chemistry will be explored in depth concerning the use of temperature and light as a spatial and temporal controlled trigger in polymer synthesis. In order to investigate this to a maximum extent, a close collaboration has been established with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, a leading institute in the field of light triggered reactions.
