Visible-light Photoredox Catalysis Transformations

Visible-light Photoredox Catalysis Transformations

Internship Description

The use of sun-light in organic transformations allows the development of sustainable transformations. Several new visible-light exited photocatalysts and polymers have been prepared. These new catalytic materials will be tested in photochemical processes including new bond formations.
Project-duration will be 3-6 month, details of arrival/departure dates to be discussed.


​Students shall extend their general knowledge and skills in organic chemistry and catalysis. An emphasis will be put on the synthesis and application of new photocatalysts. Students will be taught to work independently on projects, yet strengthening their critical sense to develop new ideas. In the course of the internship students shall demonstrate this understanding during oral presentations and a final written report.
