Research activities at the ITMC have traditionally been closely linked to developments in the industry, as demonstrated by metallocene catalysis and the fluidized bed catalysis developed it Hamburg. As a result, research also takes up developments in the chemical industry and develops them further by exploring and gaining insights into the fundamental basics of natural science. Current examples of this include the extraction of chemical raw materials from renewable sources, the use of CO2 as a chemical raw material, high-performance battery materials or the spray polymerization process. All of these examples have in common that their success is based on a holistic research into products and processes. This procedure is essential, especially for polymers, since the final product properties are largely determined by the process. As a consequent subsequent step, we carry out a scale-up to a kg-scale for full characterization and provision of samples.
At ITMC, we have extensive experience with third-party funded cooperations. Typical tasks are, for example, the design or optimization of processes, material development and material testing.
