Leon Klug, M.Sc.
Leon Klug's research focuses on the synthesis and characterisation of bio-based polyamides and polyesters. Aliphatic bio-based diols, diamines and dicarboxylic acids, which have one or more functional groups, are used as monomers. Linear polyamides or polyesters are produced from these monomers by means of various polycondensation processes. Subsequently, the polymers are examined for their physicochemical properties by established analytical methods. Another focus is on the water solubility and biodegradability of those polymers. Due to the incorporated functional groups, the polymers serve as precursor polymers and are examined for sustainable applications in the detergent, cosmetics and textile industries or in medical products.
