Professor; Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering
Polymer Chemistry and Physics, KBT026 (7.5 HP)
The course aims to provide a fundamental understanding of the chemistry and physics of polymers and focuses on the following topics: synthesis, characterisation, structure-property relationships and the physics of solutions and the solid state.
Polymer Technology, KPO021 (7.5 HP)
The course aims to provide a comprehensive knowledge about polymer technology and focuses on the interplay of processing and the properties of the resulting polymeric materials.
Colloids and Polymers, KTK106 (4.5 HP)
The course aims to provide a basic understanding of surface and colloid chemistry as well as materials chemistry, with an emphasis on polymeric materials, for a wide range of industrial applications.
Müller Research Group
Our research is located at the interface of polymer science and organic electronics. We focus on the physcial chemistry of organic semiconductors, polymer blends and composites, and develop new plastic materials for use in the fields of wearable electronics and energy technology.
