are a synthetic group with additional strong emphasis
on applied spectroscopy. A universal theme in
our research is the synthesis and characterization
of reactive coordination complexes.
These molecules are stabilized either using an
appropriate ligand system or by means of encapsulation
strategies. Therefore, the development and synthesis
of novel organic macrocyclic ligands capable to
coordinate and stabilize highly reactive species
is of great interest. The synthesis of porous
materials is another objective. Reactivity studies
shall induce a response on the improvement of
the preparative chemical synthesis, including
fine-tuning of the ligand and the porous materials.
