Research Area: Organic Synthesis, Organometallics and Catalysis

Our group is interested in the application of p-block elements in organic synthesis and catalysis. The projects are ideally a combination of experimental work featuring elements of both organic and inorganic chemistry with support by applied theoretical chemistry. Research topics involve:


  • Development of new synthetic methods for the construction of heterocycles
  • New main group based transfer reagents
  • Computational studies (prediction and design) of main group derived catalysts and reagents
  • Ligand design and asymmetric catalysis
