Heterogeneous catalysts provide several advantages compared to homogeneous catalysts, e. g. facile separation of the catalyst from the reaction mixture as well as the possibility of spatial separation of highly active nanoparticles on a solid support, inhibiting aggregation and loss of active surface area (confinement effect). Here, we used a combination of bottom-up (crystallization-driven self-assembly) and top-down (coaxial electrospinning) methods for the preparation of surface compartmentalized (patchy) nonwovens.

On February 1st, 2017 Oliver has mastered the defense of his Ph. D. thesis on biobased Polylimonenecarbonate. This topic covered aspects from synthesis, engineering, and application, which opened a new challenging research field for the chair. Thank you Oliver for your excellent work and congratulations to your great accomplishment. We wish you all the best for your next carrier step and please keep in touch.
