Research in our group is devoted to the design and synthesis of complex molecular architectures utilizing the subcomponent self-assembly of small organic precursors under reversible reaction conditions. Following a molecular design approach, we aim for a tailor-made control of the structure and function of these functional materials by means of suitable building block design and appropriate choice of dynamic coupling reactions.
In particular, we are interested in porous functional materials, e.g., covalent organic cage compounds and metal-organic, covalent organic or supramolecular frameworks, in order to obtain novel materials for applications in areas such as organic electronics, host-guest interactions or energy-related issues.
