The Institute initiated the focused research in polymer chemistry as a part of the chemical research at the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Currently Polymer Institute SAS represents an important research and training center for basic and applied research in the contemporary topics of polymer chemistry. The Institute activities cover four areas: synthesis and characterization, composite polymeric materials, polymeric biomaterials and molecular simulation of polymers.


      The primary field of research is focused on the study of special polymer structures and state-of-the-art polymerization techniques. Research activity at the department involves both applied and basic research, often in cooperation with several industrial partners including some multinational firms.
