Having published more than 125 interdisciplinary research articles as original contributions in peer-reviewed journals , Prof. Strassert has also applied for several patents and co-edited (together with Prof. Jüstel and Prof. Pöttgen) an unprecedented book on Rare Earth Chemistry (de Gruyter, 2020). These scientific and technical efforts have been devoted to the design, synthesis, characterization, and application of polymeric, hybrid, (nano)structured and (supra)molecular materials including the development of tailored physicochemical analysis methods to assess their technological and biomedical impact.
