Faculty of Chemistry

 

Welcome to the Faculty of Chemistry

In order take the sustainability and environmental compatibility into account the research foci in chemistry have changed during the last years. The enormous importance of chemistry in economy, i.e. energy supply, development of new materials, pharmaceutical research and biotechnology, is unambiguous. The close collaboration of the Faculty of Chemistry with natural scientists and engineers of the University Stuttgart, as well as with scientists of the local Max-Planck-, Fraunhofer-, and Textile Chemistry and Chemical Fibers Institute, provides a considerable location advantage.

Publication in Angewandte Chemie Int. Ed.: Iron-Catalyzed Intramolecular Aminations of C(sp3)−H Bonds in Alkylaryl Azides

Nitrogen-containing heterocycles are important structural motifs in various natural product, but they are privileged structures in medicinal chemistry and (increasingly) material science (organic electronics). A novel, efficient method for the preparation of indolines via direct amination of unactivated C(sp3)-H-bonds using an iron-catalyst was now developed in the Institute of Organic chemistry. Densely functionalized, complex structures are accessible within just one synthetic operation.

Publication in Dalton Transaction: Tuning the Overpotential of Electrocatalytically Active Cyclopentadienylnickel Complexes Containing 1,4-Diaza-1,3-butadienes (DAB) for Proton Reduction

Electrocatalysts based on earth abundant nickel were characterized and tested as proton reduction catalysts capable of reducing protons from a weak acid. Through careful tuning of the ligand electronics it was possible to match the reduction potential of the catalyst with the proton reduction potential determined by the pKa of the acid. These types of catalysts are critical in the development of alternative energy schemes by converting electrical energy into chemical energy.

Invited Review in Zeitschrift für Kristallographie – Crystalline Materials: On Halide Derivatives of Rare-Earth-Metal(III) Oxidomolybdates(VI) and –Tungstates(VI)

Halide derivatives of rare-earth metal(III) oxidomolybdates(VI) and –tungstates(VI) are within the focus of extended research in materials chemistry, because they do not only exhibit interesting structural details but also have proven to be suitable host materials for luminescence applications. The micro review represents a comprehensive, however incomplete overview of the results achieved by our and other groups in this area of research.

Publication in Nature Communications: A Four-Coordinate Cobalt(II) Single Ion Magnet With Coercivity and a Very High Energy Barrier

Single-molecule magnets display magnetic bistability of molecular origin, which may one day be exploited in magnetic data storage devices. Recently it was realised that increasing the magnetic moment of polynuclear molecules does not automatically lead to a substantial increase in magnetic bistability. Attention has thus increasingly focussed on ions with large magnetic anisotropies, especially lanthanides. In spite of large effective energy barriers towards relaxation of the magnetic moment, this has so far not led to a big increase in magnetic bistability. Here we present a comprehensive study of a mononuclear, tetrahedrally coordinated cobalt(II) single-molecule magnet, which has a very high effective energy barrier and displays pronounced magnetic bistability. The combined experimental-theoretical approach enables an in-depth understanding of the origin of these favourable properties, which are shown to arise from a strong ligand field in combination with axial distortion. Our findings allow formulation of clear design principles for improved materials.

VIP Publication in Angewandte Chemie, Int. Edition: Bismuth Undecahydro-closo-Dodecaborane: A Retainable Intermediate of B–H-Bond Activation by Bismuth(III) Cations

The icosahedral [B12H12]2– anion manifests an amazingly high stability against metal cations in aqueous solution, but for a long time interactions of this soft anion with soft cations via non-classical hydrogen bonds are known. The now presented hydrogen abstraction at the [B12H12]2– cluster by bismuth(III) cations leading to molecular BiB12H11 (shown as electroneutral pentahydrate in the figure) reveals a hitherto unknown and surprising reactivity of this anion.
