English abstract:
In these investigations, soluble photopolymers were developed for rapid prototyping to substitute cross-linked photopolymers as mold materials. By using highly reactive acrylamides with varying substituents (number of carbon atoms, linear, branched or cyclic chains) solubility and mechanical properties can be tuned.

Reactivity was determined by photo-DSC investigations. Suitability of these mold materials for the fabrication of "bio-inspired" ceramic composites that exhibit a controlled architecture in the macroscopic and the nanometer range is demonstrated. Nanostructured silica was synthesized using the sol-gel-method with different precursors and surfactants and characterized by position resolved small-angle x-ray scattering (scanning SAXS).
