We do CO2L Chemistry! Our coordination metal complexes are photoactive in the CO2 utilization (artificial photosynthesis) and in bio-imaging. We believe in a sustainable chemistry with earth-abundant resources and light as major energy source.
The research of our group is focused on applications of molecular photoswitches in biological systems of various complexity. We synthesize and apply known and emerging photochromic molecules to reversibly modulate properties of biopolymers and biocompatible materials, including supramolecular hydrogels.
