The Functional Electronic Materials Group (FEM) within the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research (IPF) designs and synthesizes functional materials for molecular electronics and organic electronics. This is based on solid foundations and concepts in organometallic, polymer and organic chemistry.

Our current research interests cover organometallic electronics, stretchable electronics, and novel matrices for MALDI Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MALDI MSI).
In the field of organometallic electronics, transition metals of the groups 6–9 are embedded into stable organic ligand systems to yield highly functional building blocks for polymer-based as well as single-molecule electronics.
With respect to stretchable electronics, molecular engineering is employed to obtain polymer semiconductors which combine electronic functionality with mechanical compliance. Dynamic bonding schemes are utilized in order to enable self-healing in electronically active materials.
Furthermore, we focus on the design and synthesis of functional matrices for MALDI MSI, a highly sensitive imaging technique allowing to visualize 2D molecular maps like the spatial distribution of metabolites in tissue slices.
