·         Feedstock diversification and renewables

·         Process development in continuously operated miniplants


Our slogan is “Homogeneous Catalysis: From molecules to processes; from understanding to sustainable production”. Since 1999 the group has been active in the field of applied catalysis, with the main focus being on homogeneous transition metal catalyzed organic reactions and a strong focus on technical applications. As shown in Box 1 we investigate both, reactions based on major petrochemicals like alkenes and dienes derived from the major steam cracker fractions, but also renewables like fats and oils, terpenes and carbohydrates. Further fields of interest are the activation of carbon dioxide via transition metal catalysis and catalytic tandem reactions (see Box 2).
