The CoorNets Subgroup

We are exploring coordination networks as functional and stimuli-responsive materials. A special focus is put on the development of non-linear optically (NLO) active as well as redox-active materials and the understanding of the occurring fundamental processes in the solid-state. Our strategy is to design functional linkers and control their topology in network materials to yield the desired property or responsivity. To achieve this goal, both classic organic linker approaches implementing well-known chromophores as well as the design of novel and innovative linker architectures are pursued in our work.
