Welcome to the Institute for Macromolecular Chemistry


Institut für Makromolekulare Chemie This building is named after Hermann Staudinger who from 1926 to 1956 carried out his pioneering research on macromolecules in Freiburg. In 1953, Herman Staudinger was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his seminal contributions to proof existence of macromolecules. (click here for the Noble Lecture)

His theories on the structure of polymers and polymer fibers, and his investigations of biological macromolecules later on in his career formed the basis for countless modern developments in material sciences and biological sciences and laid the foundation for the rapid growth of the plastic industry.

Hanwha-Total IUPAC Young Scientist Award

Neues Cover Paper der AG Sommer in Advanced Energy Materials (Cover)



Scientists from the University of Freiburg and the University of Basel identified a master regulator for bone regeneration. Prasad Shastri, Professor of Biofunctional Macromolecular Chemistry at the Institute for Macromolecular Chemistry and Professor of Cell Signalling Environments in the Cluster of Excellence BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies at the University of Freiburg led the study. The team published the results in the prestigious journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences – USA.














The 2018 Hanwha-Total IUPAC Young Scientist Award, to be presented at Macro2018, has been awarded to Andreas Walther.
