Curriculum Vitae

Dominik Pietschmann started studying chemistry at TU Dortmund University at the department of chemistry and chemical biology in October 2017 and finished his bachelor’s degree with the kinetic investigation of the homogeneous ruthenium-catalyzed amination of alcohols in 2021. He completed his master degree with the thesis “Intensification of Homogeneously Catalyzed Alcohol Amination with Ammonia – Combination of Chemistry and Reaction Engineering” at the chair of Industrial Chemistry (TC) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Vogt. in June 2023. From July 2023 to December 2023, he worked as student intern at Covestro Leverkusen in the division Business Entify Coatings & Adhesives – R&D Global Platform Crosslinkers. Since January 2024, he has been working as a research associate in the Laboratory of Industrial Chemistry.
