Prof. Katharina Landfester is a director at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany. Specific areas of her research are heterophase polymerizations, functional nanoparticles with new morphologies, reactions and phase transitions in confined geometries, and interactions of nanoparticles with cell compartments.

Dr. Daniel Crespy is a project leader at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research. His present research interests include the synthesis of new self-healing materials and anisotropic colloids.

Dr. Adrian Fuchs, Dr. Umaporn Paiphansiri and Dr. Andreas Kreyes are postdocs, Johannes Fickert and Li-Ping Lv are PhD candidates at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research.

The original research article is published in the Open Access Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry and is part of the Thematic Series Functionalized polymers: synthesis and properties.
