Substituent-element cooperativity for homogeneous catalysis with p-block element compounds
The focus of research in our group is on various aspects of substituent-element cooperativity in group 13/14 main-group element compounds. The installation of very strained, electron-rich, electron-poor or photo-addressable substituents around elements in its natural valency states shall lead to interesting new reactivities and optoelectronic features. The synthetic work is constantly inspired and supported by modern quantum chemical methods and bonding analyses.
