is professor of Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Bayreuth. He studied chemistry at the University of Mainz, where he obtained his Ph.D. in 1974. After two postdoctoral years at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, USA, he started a university career in Freiburg. In 1984 he became aprofessor of Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Karlsruhe, and in 1986 he moved to Bayreuth. His research activities cover polymer synthesis, photoreactions in polymers.

The crucial role that polymers play in the electronics industry is just one example of how modern life has been influenced by these multi purpose materials. Development of novel polymers with new and exciting properties and their effective application requires an interdisciplinary effort. This has guided the structuring of the research effort in West Germany. One result of this has been the founding of an Institute for Materials Science in Bayreuth.
