Main Group and Organometallic Chemistry

The primary objective of our research lies in the development of unique and fundamentally important areas of chemistry, in particular, the chemistry of very low oxidation state and low coordination number s- and p-block compounds. While these are highly topical from a fundamental perspective, their high reactivity was to be harnessed for their use as sustainable reagents for the "transition metal-like" stoichiometric and catalytic transformation of small molecules. Furthermore, we will be exploring the synthesis of multiply bonded main group compounds and its reactivity. Our group is also interested in synthesizing π-conjugated organoboron polymers via Si/B exchange.
