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 Alkyls
Mechanistic Understanding of Hydrogen Storage Processes
Lewis Acids for Small Molecule Activation
Helical and Optically Active Polymers
Covalently Linked Organometallic Catalysts in Engineered Proteins
Synthetic Whole-Cell Catalysts
