Organic Chemistry: catalysis, carbohydrates, molecular recognition, polymers
We design and synthesize transition metal complexes as catalysts to transform carbohydrates into other, useful entities in a novel way. These catalysts are derived from transition metal ions and multidentate ligands, such as salen.
Our projects focus on
We use organic synthesis, catalysis, biochemistry and molecular recognition in combination with material science for these interdisciplinary projects.
