Volker Abetz

Volker Abetz studied chemistry at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. He worked on spectroscopic polarimetry of polymer systems and received his degrees Dipl. chem. (1987) and Dr. rer. nat. (1990) under the supervision of Prof. Reimund Stadler. 1988/1989 he was a visiting scholar in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University in the group of Prof. Gerald G. Fuller. From 1990 to 1993 he stayed at the Max-Planck-Institut für Polymerforschung in Mainz, where he worked on structure and dynamics of polymer blends in the department Physics of Polymers (group of Prof. Erhard W. Fischer).  1993/1994 he worked at the École d’Applications des Hauts Polymères at l’Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg on  interpenetrating polymer networks in the group of Prof. Guy C. Meyer, 1994-1997 he worked on block copolymers at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Institute of Organic Chemistry, Prof. Reimund Stadler), 1997-2004 he continued the works on morphological properties of block copolymers at the Universität Bayreuth (Chair of Macromolecular Chemistry II, Prof. Reimund Stadler (until 1998), Prof. Axel. H.E. Müller (1999-2004),  habilitation in 2000). In 2004 he became a Professor for Polymer Chemistry at the Universität Potsdam. In the same year he accepted the joint positions of a director of the Institute of Chemistry (later: Polymer Research) at the GKSS (later: Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht) and a Professor at the Faculty of Technology at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel. In 2012 he became Professor for Physical Chemistry at the Universität Hamburg. His scientific interests are structure-property relationships of polymer materials with a focus on membranes.
