The research in the Besenius lab focuses on the synthesis of organic and supramolecular functional systems. We design molecular building blocks that self-assemble into programmable polymers and materials in water. Utilising natural and non-natural supramolecular interactions we investigate functional systems for applications as stimuli-responsive biomedical carrier materials and as luminescence probes.
