Research Interests

The scientific interest of our research group lies at the interface of supramolecular chemistry, physical-organic chemistry, photochemistry and optical spectroscopy. This involves synthesis and characterization of organic compounds, e.g. supramolecules and fluorescent probes. Our spectroscopic experience ranges from fast time-resolved techniques (laser-flash photolysis, time-resolved fluorescence, time-correlated single-photon counting) to conventional fluorescence spectroscopy, absorption spectroscopy and NMR spectroscopy. In addition, we have a keen interest in the development of kinetic models, which includes the analysis of complex kinetic data by advanced computer-based approaches like the development of global fitting and numerical integration routines.
