Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPI-KGF) is a state-funded research institution devoted to fundamental research and currently has about 400 employees. It is structured in 4 departments, one of them being colloid chemistry.

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces examine and create nanostructures and microstructures for diverse materials applications. The structures are often colloids – tiny particles in a different medium – or at interfaces between two media. Many of the structures are copied from successful systems in nature.

The scientists at the Potsdam-based Institute endeavour to understand how they are composed and how they work in order to imitate their behaviour in new materials or in energy devices, for example.
