Helmut Cölfen, Universität Konstanz, Germany
HELMUT CÖLFEN is full professor for physical chemistry at the university of Konstanz. His research interests are in the area of nucleation, classical and non-classical crystallization, Biomineralization, synthesis of functional polymers, directed self assembly of nanoparticles and fractionating methods of polymer and nanoparticle analysis – especially Analytical Ultracentrifugation. His group has made contributions in high resolution particle size analysis with Angström resolution in solution, Mesocrystals, Nonclassical Nucleation and Crystallization, CaCO3 crystallization, bio-inspired mineralization, synthesis of double hydrophilic block copolymers and additive controlled crystallization.
