The Hohloch Group
Non-classical Carbenes and Macrocyclic Systems

Welcome to the Homepage of the Hohloch Research Group.

We are interested in the synthesis of new, functional organometallic compounds und their applications in chemical and physical processes. Special emphasis is laid on the connection between the electronic and spectroscopic properties of a metal complex with its general reactivity. Understanding this interplay enables us to design tailor made metal complexes for a plethora of applications, including small molecule activation, single molecule magnetism and catalysis. To reach these goals, focus is put especially on the use of "non-classical" N-heterocyclic carbenes, such as cyclic alkyl amino carbenes (CAACs) and mesoionic carbenes (MICs). Another class of ligands that will be extensively used in our research will be macrocyclic ligands, including Tetramethyltetraazaannulene (TMTAA) or Norcorroles. On the metal side, we plan to focus on 3d transition metals (Sc - Zn) as well ason the lanthanides (La - Lu).

Interested in a bachelor, master or Ph.D. thesis? We are always searching for highly motivated chemists to enrich and enlarge our group. Just mail "the boss".


10.10.2018Our collaboration with the Arnold Group, Lawrence Berkeley NAtional Laboratory and Laurent Maron on "non-innocence" in uranium TMTAA complexes has been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie. DOI: 10.1002/201810971.
