Area B: Catalysis

Area B of this CRC will be concerned with the probing of confinement effects and the development of a suitable linker technology to attach the catalyst within the pore.

The following catalyzed reactions, which are representatives for some of the most important transformations in organic chemistry, will be investigated in detail:

  • Transfer Hydrogenation
  • Olefin Metathesis
  • Asymmetric 1,4- Addition
