Based on our previous results, our project evolves naturally into new areas of research. For our metal-organic precursors for oxide materials, we obtained new Fe-clusters which possess catalytic properties, which we will fine-tune in the current project. Catalysis is also of interest in the context of silver nanoparticles, which we obtained during our investigations of coordination polymers with silver. Supramolecular materials based on crown ethers and calixarenes are investigated for e.g. ion conductivity or molecular magnet formation, respectively, while hydrogels obtained from short peptidesand hybrid materials of these with nanoparticles are studied in the context of new bio(inspired)-materials.
