Area of specialisation
Anorganic chemistry, solid-state chemistry, computer-assisted chemistry
Synthesising binary aggregates of main group elements – without (1) or with (2) functional organic ligands.
Reactions of (1) with respect to transition metal compounds to produce compounds with multinary and intermetalloid cluster anions.
Reactions of (2) with respect to organic compounds with complementary functionality to produce hybrid compounds based on binary and multinary metal-chalcogenide complexes.
Experimental investigations of the entire subject area: single-crystal structural analysis, spectroscopy (IR/Raman, UV-Vis, PL, heteronuclear NMR, ESR), ESI mass spectrometry, cyclic voltammetry, thermal analysis, gas sorption analysis, SQUID measurements (collaboration), Mössbauer investigations (collaboration).
Quantum-chemical investigations of the entire subject area: the TURBOMOLE programme package.
