About the Author

Wolfgang H. Binder is currently Full Professor for Macromolecular Chemistry at the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (see www.macrochem.uni-halle.de). He received his PhD in Organic Chemistry in 1995 at the University of Vienna. In his post doc research at Emory University, USA, he specialized on colloidal chemistry/macro-molecular chemistry. In 1997 he became an Assistant Professor at the Technical University of Vienna and in 2004 Associate Professor. His research is focused on synthesis and self-assembly of tailored polymers and analytical polymer science, with applications in material science, nanotechnology and medicine; Wolfgang H. Binder has published more than 120 scientific articles.
