    Current Research Topics

    • Structural studies on natural products with quantum chemical methods
    • Prediction of optical properties of organic and organometallic molecules with a special emphasis on chiroptical properties by TDDFT, MRCI or Coupled Cluster methods
    • Investigations on the conformational stability and the dynamics of isomerization processes of chiral compounds
    • Analytical and Preparative HPLC also in combination with coupled UV/CD measurements
    • Elucidation of absolute configurations of organic molecules by a combination of experimental and quantum chemically predicted spectra (NMR, UV, ECD)
    • Development of SpecDis

    For examples have a look at  the publication list and at --> Fields of Research --> Computational Chemistry
