Who we are

The Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Czech Academy of Sciences especially pursues basic research in the chemistry and physics of polymers, and as target-oriented applied research gains increasing importance, cooperation with polymer industry becomes vital.

The research comprises the three main areas:

  • Biomacromolecular systems
  • Dynamics and self-assembling of molecular and supramolecular polymer structures
  • Preparation, characterization and use of new polymer systems with controlled structure and properties

An important part of the Institute´s activity is the PhD program in polymer science, carried out in cooperation with universities.

Researchers contributing to a postdoctoral program are welcomed.

Teaching and the practical laboratory training of undergraduate students are considered as an integral part of the IMC´s activities.
