"BEYOND PEO" Solid polymer electrolytes from polyesters with diester sidechains for lithium metal batteries

Dominic, Alexander and Harimohan published together a new concept for matrix polymers based on polyesters to realize solid polymer electrolytes with high lithium transport number as well as good specific capacity retention in a wide range of T of 40-80°C and even at high C-rates in solvent-free all solid-state Lithium metal batteries. J. Mater. Chem. A,  2022,

Mukundan ThelakkatWelcome to Applied Functional Polymers group at University of Bayreuth!

We are an interdisciplinary group covering fields of Chemistry, Physics and Material Science.

Our objectives are

  • to design and develop novel tailor made functional molecules, polymers and block copolymers,
  • to combine organics with other functional inorganics to get hybrid systems and
  • to contribute conceptually to solar energy conversion and storage.

Our tools include diverse thin film preparation techniques, self-assembly and device preparation and characterization in addition to elaborate synthetic methods.
