Smart functional sequence-defined oligomers and polymers incorporating rigid cyclodextrin host molecules
The project “Smart functional sequence-defined oligomers and polymers incorporating rigid cyclodextrin host molecules” in the field of supramolecular chemistry examines various possible applications of cyclodextrins as renewable host molecules that have high attractiveness as cheap and sustainable building blocks. In combination with sequence-defined oligomers, they will serve to access to new types of highly selective catalysts. In turn, by combining cyclodextrins with sustainable cross-linked polymers, environmentally friendly and reusable materials for the design of sustainable water purification systems will be prepared. The project is led by the University of Strasbourg and is carried out in cooperation with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Eucor – The European Campus supports the consortium with the Seed Money funding instrument in the funding line “Research and Innovation”.
