Institute for Chemical Technology of Organic Materials

Beschreibung: WELCOME to the Institute for Chemical Technology of Organic Materials

Current research in the CTO group at the Johannes Kepler University Linz focuses on a wide range of organic synthesis of industrial relevance. Especially complex macromolecular architectures with selected functionality and composition via radical and coordination polymerization protocols are of interest. Other points of interest are additive chemistry, renewable resources and process safety. Our research interests are mainly at the interface of organic and polymer chemistry, with particular focus on industrial applications.

This website can help you to get to know somewhat more about us: who we are, what we do and how we do it, what our equipment and infrastructures are, with who we collaborate, how you can link with us.

Thank you for your time and interest. Enjoy your virtual visit!

15th-16th February 2018: Teambuilding Schlierbach
Based on the fact, that we are a big team, which changes every now and then, it is important to strengthen the team spirit. That was the reason why Prof. Paulik convened a teambuilding event, which was organized by the personnel management of the University. Therefore, all the employees of the institute met at the seminar hotel SPES located in Schlierbach from Thursday morning until Friday afternoon (15th-16th February).
Important topics were discussed alongside the strengthening of the common “we”. We practiced the correct pointing out of mistakes, the correct addressing and acceptance of criticism, the support at our institute and the esteem among the colleagues and the different positions at the institute. These topics where handled on the one hand via games and on the other hand with several group works. After all participants gave their opinions on the issues we developed some kind of “general rules” for the communication and the contact at the institute with the support of Günther Schackmann, an external trainer of keytrain. In the end, we are more aware now of how to interact with each other and that appreciation of the counterpart is very important for the commerce within such a big group of people.
Thanks for the opportunity to attend this seminar. We will work to further improve our already existing strong solidarity.


24th October, 2017: Time to say goodbye...
    Our colleague Paul successfully celebrated his PhD graduation with us in May and we had the pleasure to keep him at the institute for a few more months. In October, however, it was finally over and Paul left the JKU and thus our institute as well. To see the whole situation with a laughing and a crying eye, he invited us to a farewell snack on the 24th of October. He provided us with delicacies such as various spreads, cheese and sausage slices, fresh bread, and delicious muffins.
    In addition to his new job, he became father in early October. To give him a little pleasure, we gave him a diaper cake, which has already been used up by now.
    Dear Paul, We wish you all the best for your new life section and look forward to see you again.


16th October, 2017: Teambuilding - Singstar evening
    Verena was so kind and organized a further teamevent for us. Therefore, we met at five o´clock in the afternoon and prepared the game console for our “Singstar” evening. In the meantime, Raphaela, who was responsible for the appropriate meal cooked “Käsknöpfle”- a dish from her homeland, with original “vorarlberger cheese”. Theresa, whose dad is a vintner, took care of the drinks for the evening and brought some must (Sturm) for us.
     After we finished the excellent dinner we were ready to play Singstar – a very popular karaoke game. From over 200 different songs could be selected and we had no problems to find cool songs to sing. Each of the singers showed their talents, they gave everything to entertain us and all together we really had a lot of fun. Thanks to all the people who organized the evening!


1st-5th October 2017: 10th World Congress of Chemical Engineering, Barcelona, Spain
    Patricia and Andreas were lucky to attend the 10th WCCE from 1st October – 5th October in Barcelona, Spain. Both presented their work with a poster. Patricias was part of the bioprocess engineering topic whilst Andreas presented his poster in the micro-reactor section. This conference is one of the biggest and finest concerning many topics of the world of chemical engineering. In more than 10 parallel sessions every day several thousands attendees had the opportunity to listen, to learn and to network. Besides the conference venue, our fellow colleagues visited memorable places in Barcelona such as the olympic stadium, the shopping mile Las Ramblas or the basilica Sagrada Familia. Barcelona: what a place to be!


25th-28th September 2017: 17th Austrian Chemistry Days, Salzburg, Austria
    Our institute was well represented at this year’s Austrian Chemistry Days in Salzburg. Prof. Schwarzinger, Gottfried, Klara, Matea, Regina and Sara presented their current research on Polymer Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry and Biotechnology during the poster sessions. Prof. Schwarzinger additionally gave an interesting talk about characterization methods of gemstones and their imitations. Regina was awarded for her participation in the Young Chemist’s “Tell Your Story” competition and gave us insight into her unconventional way to chemistry – her life passion.
    Beside our personal inputs, we listened to a lot of presentations covering various fields of chemistry and got the great opportunity to attend Evonik’s “Foresight Management” workshop organised by the Young Chemists. Our evenings were filled with traditional food and beverages from Salzburg and fruitful, exclusively scientific discussions at welcome parties and conference dinners. We are all looking forward to welcoming you to the upcoming Chemistry Days 2019 in Linz.
