Our main research interests lie in the area of inorganic glasses and glass-ceramics, with a particular focus on the interaction beween the material and water. For this reason, water soluble glasses such as bioactive glasses or phosphate glasses constitute a key part of our work, as well as new glass-based biomaterials for biomedical applications, including glass/polymer composites and glass ionomer (polyalkenoate) bone cements. We aim to understand the composition-structure-property relationship in these materials, with the aim to tailor new compositions to suit specific applications.

The Bioactive Glasses Group is part of the Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research at the Faculty of Chemistry and Earth Sciences of the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena.
