to the Chair of Organometallic Chemistry at RWTH Aachen University. You may find on the following pages a short overview of our research and teaching activities.
The main focus of our present research is based on organometallic compounds of non-precious, earth abundant metals:
Molecular Metal Hydrides and AlkylsMechanistic Understanding of Hydrogen Storage ProcessesLewis Acids for Small Molecule Activation
Polymerization CatalysisStereoselective PolymerizationHelical and Optically Active Polymers
Artificial MetalloenzymesCovalently Linked Organometallic Catalysts in Engineered ProteinsSynthetic Whole-Cell Catalysts
