MAINZ award for Anna Maria Hofmann and Christine Tonhauser
Date:11/27/2013

The 2012 doctoral award of the Graduate School of Excellence "Materials Science in Mainz" (MAINZ) was given to Anna Maria Hofmann and Christine Tonhauser. Anna Maria Hofmann received the prize for work on new types of multi-functional liposomes. Christine Tonhauser was honored for her thesis on functional polyethylene glycols. The MAINZ Award for excellent dissertations in materials science includes prize money of EUR 2,000 and has been given this year for the fourth time. The two doctoral candidates, who were members of the work group of Professor Holger Frey at the Institute of Organic Chemistry at Mainz University, received their prizes during the ceremony held on October 11, 2013 in which Professor Hartmut Zabel of the Ruhr University Bochum was bestowed with the MAINZ Visiting Professorship.

Anna Maria Hofmann received the MAINZ Award 2012 for her highly innovative dissertation on multi-functional liposomes entitled "Amphiphilic Polyethers via Oxyanionic Polymerization: From Liposomes to Liquid Crystals." In this she considers the synthesis of new polyfunctional lipids a complex and multi-faceted subject that is highly relevant to the fields of pharmaceutical sciences and biochemistry and involves the investigation of the chemistry of lipids and the physical chemistry of thin lipid layers. The high quality of the dissertation is demonstrated by the fact that it has generated a series of high-profile publications. Hofmann, who now works for Evonik in Marl, Germany, was the first to establish the direct oxyanionic polymerization synthesis process using cholesterol.

Dr. Christine Tonhauser, who completed her doctorate in a relatively brief period of just two-and-a-half years, achieved another accomplished dissertation. Her thesis on "Tailored Epoxide Monomers as Building Units for Multifunctional Poly(ethylene glycol)" was the origin of four papers that have appeared in the internationally eminent journal Macromolecules.
