Current Research

We are interested in organocatalytic reactions and methods (thioureas, oligopeptides), nanodiamonds (diamondoids) as building blocks and materials (e.g., organic electronics), matrix isolation of reactive intermediates (e.g., carbenes) and computational chemistry . Our group consists of scientists from the People's Republic of China, Germany, Iran, the Czech Republic, Ukraine and the United States of America. Besides interesting conversations about science and more, this leads to a tangle of voices and smells in our kitchen...
