Our research projects
Conformer populations in host-guest complexes
Relative stereochemistry of multiple stereocenters.
Conformational restriction of flexible molecules with multiple stereocenters allows the determination of their relative stereochemistry.
Absolute stereochemistry via host-guest complexes
Determination of absolute stereochemistry by circular dichroism via induced helicity in bis-metalloporphyrins
Development of enhanced host systems for stereochemical analysis of organic guest molecules.
Modulation of molecular properties: ”Photoswitchable” peptidomimetics allowing to manipulate functionality by external steering
Artificial amino acids incorporating a photoisomerizable chromophor are integrated into the backbones of peptides.
Conducting redox polymers
Building blocks for conducting redox polymers (with M. Strømme)
Conducting redox polymers (CRPs) combine the properties of conducting organic polymers such as polypyrrol or polythiophene and a covalently attached pendant redox group.
