Transfer hydrogenation (TH) reactions utilise hydrogen containing molecules as donors to catalytically transfer hydrogen onto other organic compounds with good activities and high adjustability. This is one of the most commonly used methods for the transformation of aldehydes and ketones to alcohols and often finds application in fine-chemical or pharmaceutical production. In my research, I focus on abnormally coordinated N-heterocyclic carbene (aNHC) ruthenium complexes. Based on our recent discovery of a highly active ruthenium catalyst, my goal is the further optimisation of this type of catalyst system and the investigation of further potential catalytic applications of ruthenium catalysts.

Due to promising antiproliferative properties of various gold(I) N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) my research focuses on modifications with selectivity-enhancing biomolecules. Through these, selectivity issues of common metal complexes like cisplatin against malignant cells might be reduced. My research involves the synthesis, characterization and preliminary in-vitro studies.

My research focusses on the utilization of histidine as a suitable precursor for gold(I) NHC complexes (NHC = N-heterocyclic carbene). This ligand system offers an amino acid functionality in the backbone, which allows the coupling of bio-relevant compounds to increase the selectivity towards tumor cells (e.g. integrine ligands). The focus is set on in vitro anti-cancer studies.

Due to their unique properties, silicones are of great industrial interest. My research focuses on Pt-catalyzed hydrosilylation, where Karstedt’s catalyst and Markó’s catalyst are used as benchmark for catalytic activity and selectivity, respectively. A major problem in silicone chemistry is the irretrievable loss of Pt, as the catalyst remains in cured products. Improvement of the stability and activity of the catalyst lowers the necessary amount of Pt and could possibly avoid yellowing of silicones, which is due to Pt-nanoparticle formation.
