Research Areas

Prof. Plank (b. 1952) works in the field of inorganic (cement chemistry, silicates, aluminates, phosphate, CaSO4 phases) and organic binding agents (latex dispersions, epoxy resins, polyurethane). He also studies construction chemical admixtures (polycondensate resins, polycarboxylate, cellulose ethers, siloxanes, biopolymers), colloid chemistry, interface and surface phenomena and nanochemistry (nanomaterials and composite materials).
