Research

We have a great passion for the development of endo- and exo-functionalized cage-compounds. Beside the design of new toplogogies the cages are investigated on their abilities to act for instance as ligands to transition metals. We aim thereby to mimic the ligand sphere of active sites of prominent enzymes. Those bio-inspired transition metal-complexes are investigated for their abilities to activate and transform small molecules or to catalyse organic transformations.
