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 or
electron-poor 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.
