Seminars and Events
Our basic, frontline research in natural photosynthesis has served as inspiration and guidelines for research in artificial photosynthesis since many years. Our long-term integration of research in natural and man-made systems has become our signature and proven to be a fruitful apporach.
Research in Microbial Chemistry is of fundamental science character in the borderland between chemistry, cell- and molecular biology, and genetics. The vision is to use a combination of advanced gene technology and synthetic biology to develop and analyze photosynthetic microorganisms to be used in future biotechnological applications. At present, the largest research area aims to develop cyanobacteria which convert solar energy into an energy carrier.
Within Molecular Inorganic Chemistry we work on synthetic molecular chemistry of bio-inorganic model compounds and various aspects of molecular main group chemistry:
Catalysis for Artificial Photosynthesis
We develop catalysts for chemical, electrochemical, and photochemical splitting of water and carbon dioxide for alternative fuel production (e.g. hydrogen or alcohols).
We deal with different aspects of molecular systems containing maingroup elements. We search for new applications of main group compounds in unusual bonding situations in homogeneous catalysis, molecular- and organic electronics.
Education within Molecular Biomimetics
Molecular biomimetics is not one subject, but many! If you are interested in studies in any of our areas, these are the options (given in English):
