Prof. Dr. Boris Mahltig, born 1973 in Dortmund, studied chemistry at the Universität Bremen and write his Diplom thesis 1998 on plasma polymer coatings and copper nanoclusters. After working at the Max Planck Institut für Polymerforschung in Mainz and the Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden, he gained the PhD 2001 at the Technische Universität Dresden. From 2001 to 2011 he worked as project manager at the company GMBU in Dresden-Rossendorf. During this period he developed sol-gel coatings for functionalization of several materials as textile, wood, glass or metal substrates. Since 2011, he is professor for textile functionalization at the Hochschule Niederrhein in Mönchengladbach. His main research interests are related to radiation protective materials, microwave synthesis and the use of biomaterials for textile functionalization.
He is the author of more than 100 research papers and book chapters – and the inventor of more than 10 patents. In 2008, he published together with Prof. Textor the book “Nanosols & Textiles”.
