Materials and products

Our materials are used in healthcare and pharmaceuticals, environmental engineering and household products.


We discover, design, formulate and manufacture advanced materials and products with control over multiple length scales ranging from nanoscales to macroscales. We measure and predict the structure and the performance of such complex products using state-of-the-art analytical tools and sophisticated models.
