Biomimetic functionalization

Artificial receptor molecules (molecularly imprinted polymers, MIPs) are interesting for niche applications that cannot be analysed by biochemical binding molecules such as antibodies or aptamers. Aggressive environmental conditions such as extreme pH-values or organic solvents, as they can occur in protein purification, usually prevent the use of antibodies. In this context MIPs are the molecules of choice. Our research focuses on water-compatible, thin polymer films with energetically homogeneous binding sites, e.g. for the recognition of proteins and peptides.
