At first glance, it is surprising that iron constitutes one of the few remaining niches in the periodic table, as far as applications in homogeneous catalysis are concerned, since iron compounds are cheap, readily available, non-toxic and benign. This void is caused, to a large extent, by the lack of understanding of and control over the organometallic chemistry of this metal. Recent years, however, have seen important advances in this field, most notably in the area of cross coupling, to which the Mülheim laboratories have made substantial contributions. more
Natural Products provide constant inspiration for the development of new synthetic methods, in particular in the realm of homogeneous catalysis. At the same time, they constitute important tools for biochemical, biological and medicinal purposes as exemplified by selected projects from the laboratory of the author. more
Squares make their appearances by rejecting the dense structure of buildings in the city. Nevertheless they are not empty surfaces, vacuums or vessels, but spaces that develop in a variety of structural relationships. As a spatial expression of the city, squares reflect their city. In particular in the Western world, the square is perceived as a „public space“ through which political and social happenings are imparted. The consequence for the fine arts is the task of analysing the structure of squares as well as how they impact the city around them. more
