Synthetic inorganic and organometallic chemistry and catalysis. The research in the Roesler group targets novel transformations mediated by earth-abundant transition metals. Usually the work involves the design of new ligands, common motifs being diaminocarbenes, imines, amines and phosphines in chelating, pincer and tripodal architectures. Areas of applications include small molecule activation, low carbon fuels, and redox flow batteries.
The group has a keen interest in the investigations of molecules and transformations that promise to bring substantial contributions to the fundamental knowledge of the discipline, even if these might not be immediately related to potential applications. Some of these investigations target new ligands containing main group element other than carbon, and their transition metal complexes.
