Welcome to the Laboratory of Catalysis & Synthesis!

Thank you for visiting the AJvW group websites.

Current position: University of Hamburg

We are a dynamic research group at the modern campus of the University of Regensburg and call a UNESCO world heritage city with Celtic, Roman, and German roots our home.

Research activities in our group span the themes of sustainable catalysis and synthesis. Current areas of investigation include complex synthesis and catalysis with 3d-transition metals, nanoparticles, and visible-light mediated reactions. We also design and apply new reactor technologies (photo, micro, flow, pressure) to maximize the efficiency and operational simplicity of chemical processes.

If you are a student at whatever stage of your studies and we caught your attention, please e-mail us to learn more about research opportunities in our group.
