Welcome to the Institute of Organic Chemistry III!



The Institute of Organic Chemistry III focusses in its research on macromolecular science with an emphasis on the synthesis of materials. This ranges from supramolecular entities of small molecules over bio-oriented toward colloidal materials. We are also teaching macromolecular science in bachelor and master courses. For more information please go to the special pages shown at the top.
