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 the Department of Solid State Physics, Risų National Laboratory, in Denmark. In 1998, he joined the Department of Chemistry at Lund University as a Research Fellow to build up a research group on polymers for energy technologies. He was appointed to Full Professor in 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.

Research areas

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 application-specific requirements that drive the research for new multifunctional polymer materials which require 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) and modification techniques to prepare our polymers, and then use characterization methods such as NMR, FTIR, impedance spectroscopy, AFM, scattering, gravimetry and calorimetry to investigate the structure and properties of our materials and membranes.
