Our research activities revolve around the use of intermolecular interactions in the molecular design of chemosensors, catalysts and pharmaceutically active compounds. Design, synthesis and determination of properties are the typical elements of all projects. We currently focus on the following challenges:



Niedrig schmelzende Zucker-Harnstoff Gemische zur Extraktion von Metallen und anderen Wertstoffen




Molecular Recognition

with functionalized vesicles or surfaces




Chemical Photocatalysis

Using visible light for (enantio)selective organic transformations

Sustainable Chemistry

Catalytic conversion of carbohydrates into fine chemicals



Medicinal Chemistry

Molecular tools for the investigation of ABC transporters and GpcRs





Teaching Chemistry to students and to the public
