Overview of the current research topics in the Bräse working group


Synthesis of biological relevant complex structures and highly porous structures


  • Synthesis of natural products (Mycotoxins) and other bioactive molecules
  • Biological relevant structures (antibiotics, cytostatics, toxins)
  • Crop protection (herbicides, insecticides, fungicides)
  • Molecular transporters (peptides, peptoids, polyamines)
  • Highly porous structures
  • Chemical biology of cell recognition


  • Combinatorial chemistry (solid-phase synthesis, automated synthesis)
  • Asymmetric synthesis (metal- and organocatalysis, chiral ligands)
  • Organometallic synthesis (transitionmetal catalyzed processes)
  • Metal Complexes
