Research

The major topic of research are large, metal-rich molecules - organo(inter)metallic clusters, which exhibit structural relationships to classical alloys such as brass. Identification of selective syntheses as well as investigations of physical as well as chemical properties of this rather novel and unusual compounds are in the focus of interests.
