Research Topic: Monitoring hydrogenolysis Cp* cleavage by LIFDI-MS and generation of living libraries
In his Master’s Thesis project, Raphael focuses on the the development of a new methodology for a systematic creation of reactive sites on intermetallic TM/E clusters by hydrogenolysis of the Cp* ligand. The aim is to generate so called “living libraries” of clusters, that can be detected with high resolution Liquid Injection Field Desorption Ionization Mass Spectrometry (LIFDI-MS). Such libraries could then be converted in screening trials with different substrates in order to investigate the reactivity of different clusters simultaneously. The different investigations will be performed using a design of experiment (DoE) approach.
