Research

Departments

The Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces was founded in 1992. Research in Colloid and Interface Science is widely covered by the following Departments

Biomaterials 
Professor Dr. Dr.h.c. Peter Fratzl

Biomolecular Systems
Professor Dr. Peter H. Seeberger

Colloid Chemistry
Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Markus Antonietti

Theory & Bio-Systems 
Professor Dr. Reinhard Lipowsky

the Max Planck Research Group

Mechano(bio)chemistry
Dr. Kerstin Blank

and the

Emeritus Group (Interfaces)
Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Helmuth Möhwald

Current research topics are polymeric films, membranes, microcapsules, organic and inorganic nano- structures, biomineralization, nano- and microreactors, molecular motors and filaments as well as chemistry and biology of carbohydrates.
Biomimetic research is at the core of the Institute’s activity. Common goal is to learn from nature how to build hierarchical materials or active systems with new functionalities, with adaptive, self-healing or self-assembling properties.
