 Project objective

The need for more sustainable and environmentally-friendly products and materials is driven by an increasing environmental and health awareness, opening new markets with significant economic potential. Specifically, plastic and microplastic pollution are parts of an environmental hazard which have received significant media attention over the last few years. The difficulty in recycling commodity plastics means that incineration and landfills are the predominant ways of dealing with this waste. Novel materials are necessary to tackle these issues and facilitate the recycling and degradation of (commodity) polymers. Building on the expertise of the host supervisor (Prof. Christoph Weder) and his group at the Adolphe Merkle Institute, University of Fribourg, in the field of supramolecular polymers and material science, novel materials based on metallosupramolecular polymers will be developed which are envisaged to provide a solution to the above issues. Moreover, a novel platform for metallosupramolecular polymers based on renewable building blocks will be developed which allow to prepare bio-based, benign, and (bio)degradable metallosupramolecular polymer precursors. This MSCA will provide the applicant with the unique opportunity to improve his scientific skill set and network in the scientific community and allow the applicant to apply for independent academic positions in the polymer and material science field by the end of this fellowship.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "DECOMPOSE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
