Chemspeed speeds up polymer and materials research at Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena

Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, Laboratory of Organic and Macromolecular Chemistry, speeds up the elucidation of structure-property relationships thanks to Chemspeed

The implementation of multiple Chemspeed platforms for polymer synthesis and materials research was a great driving force for the cutting edge polymer and materials research in Jena. Prof. Ulrich S. Schubert says: “The automated synthetic platforms enable us to gain a factor of 5 to 10 in time, speed or new knowledge in polymer science. In combination with advanced characterization techniques, Chemspeed’s platforms represent the key technologies for the elucidation of structure-property-relationships of polymers. And they form the basis of multiple large grants and industrial research contracts initiated within the last two years.” For more information, please visit Chemspeed is proud to count Prof. Ulrich S. Schubert and his team in our customer base. It is this kind of cooperation that spurs us to continuously challenge and further develop our solutions. The Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena is a member of the Dutch Polymer Institute (, in which industry as well as leading research groups carry out pre-competitive research projects. Within the technology area “High-throughput Experimentation” Chemspeed and the Schubert-group have cooperated already since 2002. In order to further boost the application of HTE equipment, e.g. for pharmaceutical applications, the interdisciplinary Jena Center for Soft Matter (JCSM) has recently been created.

About Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena
Founded in 1558, the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena has a long history of pioneering education and research. In particular the strong education in the field of natural sciences has a long tradition. Today the university has five priority research areas, including “Optics, Photonics and Photonic Technologies” as well as “Innovative Materials and Technologies”, the latter one headed by Prof. Schubert. The third-party funds exceeded 70 Mio. € pa in recent years. Currently, ca. 22,000 students from over 90 countries are studying at the traditional university, which is surrounded by a multitude of Max-Planck-, Leibnitz- and Fraunhofer-Institutes.
