The project investigates the mechanistic (entropic) formation of organic-inorganic coacervates with improved mechanical strength. We seek to control and modify material properties and stimuli-responsive characteristics of hybrid coacervates, and to explore new practical applications of organic-inorganic coacervate complexes, i.e. (bio)separation, wastewater treatment, drug delivery, battery electrolyte and electrodes.
