Duisburg Essen University
UDE’s valuable contribution to the XERIC project is its expertise in hydrophobic membranes.
Universität Duisburg-Essen (UDE) offers a broad spectrum of fields, with a strong focus on sciences, engineering and medicine.
The “Technische Chemie II” Chair (TCII), led by Prof. Ulbricht, has a key position within research and teaching in UDE’s Chemistry Department. Research carried out by Prof. Ulbricht’s group is devoted to functional polymeric materials with a focus on separation membranes and particular emphasis on applications in water purification and related processes. Core competences of his group include development of polymer-based membranes, coatings or surface modifications with various functionalities such as hydrophilic or hydrophobic, antifouling and molecular recognition.
