Polymer chemistry and materials
Renewable photoresponsive polymers

The Calvino group joined the Cluster of Excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS) at the University of Freiburg early in 2021. The research group leads the development of light-mediated adaptive polymers that incorporate advantageous photoswitchable motifs to improve controlled reprocessing, reshaping, and repairing processes.
