Materials ChemistryThe Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC

The focus of the cluster Materials Chemistry is on chemical (nano-) technology for the manufacture of inorganic or hybrid materials and the processing and forming thereof into layers, fibers, capsules or powders.

The cluster Materials Chemistry streamlines the expertise from the specialized areas of sol-gel chemistry, coating technology and particle technology.


As a result, a wide range of synthetic methods is available for the development and optimization of materials and components of materials. Comprehensive solutions are worked out for specific applications in engineering, health, energy, construction and environment as well as the protection of cultural heritage.

Sol-gel Materials
Sol-gel Materials

In this field researchers synthesize precursors for non-metallic, inorganic materials using the classic sol-gel chemistry route. more

Hybrid Coatings
Hybrid Coatings

In the process of chemical nanotechnology multifunctional hybrid polymer coating materials are synthesized. more

Particle Technology
Particle Technology

Small particles are essential building-blocks for many advanced materials that are relevant in almost all fields of today’s technologies. Small particles may be tailored to comprise multifunctional properties such as magnetism, electrical and thermal conductivity, luminescence, catalytic activity, flame retardancy etc. at one spot. more

Theranostics
Theranostics

The main emphasis of the competence field Theranostics is on products enabling highly efficient and personalized therapy accompanying in vitro and in vivo diagnosis or even combine diagnosis and therapy in situ. more
