Welcome to the Gooßen Group


Research Objectives

Our research is devoted to the development of straightforward transition metal-catalyzed reactions as alternatives to inconvenient multistep transformations. The derivatization of complex molecules selectively at one specific functional group in the presence of other sensitive functionalities is a major challenge in organic synthesis.

Our primary research goals are

  • to find new catalytic transformations for the introduction of interesting functionalities under mild conditions
  • to exploit alternative substrates for catalysis that will result in the reduction of waste salts and effluents
  • to solve long-standing problems in catalysis
  • to contribute to the in-depth mechanistic understanding of catalytic reactions
