100th birthday of Prof. Rolf Christian Schulz

On October 28, the 100th anniversary of the polymer researcher Prof. Rolf Christian Schulz from Mainz was celebrated.

Schulz held a chair for organic and macromolecular chemistry at the University of Mainz until 1989. He was active in the field of the synthesis of new polymers and focused on topics that are still modern today: functionalization of polymers, block copolymers, optically active polymers and polyelectrolyte materials. 230 publications in these areas provide extensive evidence of his research activities. Prof. Schulz died in 2010. Up to now, his former doctoral students have a close connection to each other and meet regularly.
