Technische Universität Dresden

Organisation Introduction

Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) has its roots in the Royal Saxon Technical School that was founded in 1828. Today, it is a university that unites the natural and engineering sciences with the humanities and social sciences, as well as medicine. TUD is one of the largest technical universities in Germany and has been one of Germany’s “Universities of Excellence” since 2012. TUD is involved in 2D PRINTABLE project with the Chair of Molecular Functional Materials headed by Prof. Xinliang Feng.

In this group, we are exploring precision chemistry and synthesis to discover new materials with emergent phenomena and properties to address global challenges.

In particular, our research activities are focused on the following areas:

  • Exploration of precision chemistry with new synthetic methodologies and strategies.
  • Exploring the unique properties of new materials and discovering new chemical and physical phenomena.
  • Development of next-generation materials for electronics, optoelectronics, spintronics, energy storage/conversion.


Our group is leading the fields of (electro-) chemical exfoliation of 2D layered materials and developing 2D material inks/pastes for printable devices. We have developed a wide range of 2D materials including graphene, TMDs, MXenes and 2D heterostructures via electrochemical exfoliation and studies their physical properties. Therefore, the 2D-PRINTABLE-project objectives are completely in the limelight of our activities. Moreover, with the help of the other partners, we could further investigate the network formation and printing of these novel 2D materials towards future printed electronic devices.

Involvement in 2D-PRINTABLE

In the 2D PRINTABLE project we develop new 2D materials via (electro)chemical exfoliation. In addition, we lead the WP2 responsible for 2D material defect engineering and functionalization. We also develop 2D material inks/dispersions for the fabrication of large area networks.
