Biographical sketch

Patric Jannasch received his Ph. D. degree in Chemical Engineering from Lund University in 1996. Between 1996 and 1998, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Risų National Laboratory in Roskilde, Denmark (today part of the Danish Technical University). In 1998, he joined the Department of Chemistry at Lund University as a Research Fellow to establish a research group on polymers for energy technologies. He was appointed to Full Professor of Polymer Technology in 2010. Jannasch’s research and teaching interests cover most aspects of polymeric materials, including polymer synthesis, macromolecular structure, polymer morphology, transport properties, and new membrane materials for separation and energy applications.

Polymers for energy and sustainability

The research in our group explores the connection between macromolecular structure, morphology, and the resulting properties in polymeric materials. Our activities thus span across macromolecular design, synthesis, polymer self-assembly, and material structure and property characterization of polymers. In particular, we are motivated by global challenges concerning energy and sustainability that drive the research for new multifunctional polymer materials. This requires new synthetic strategies and careful fundamental studies of structure and properties. Currently our research activities are centered on:
We employ different polymerization (anionic, radical, condensation, etc) and modification methods to prepare our polymers, and then use a variety of charaterization techniques  to study for example molecular structure and nano-scale morphology, as well as the thermal, mechanical and transport properties of the materials and membranes.
