Research focus

1. Multidentate N-heterocyclic carbene ligands

N-Heterocyclic carbenes feature the beneficial property of a combined strong σ-donor- and weak π-acceptor character. We want to make use of this in the design
of transition metal catalysts.  

1.1 Synthesis and reactivity of pincer-complexes

1.2 Catalytic properties of the Rh-pincer complexes

1.3 Coordination chemistry of tetradentate electronrich ligands


2. Mono- and dipyrido carbene

2.1 Dipyrido carbenes and their Rh-complexes

2.2 Bis(monopyrido)Pd(II)-complexes


3. New synthetic pathways to N-heterocyclic carbenes

3.1 N-Arylation of imidazolin-2-one and synthesis of imidazolin-2-ylidenes


4. Ionic ligands
