Inorganic Solid State Chemistry
Jun.-Prof. Dr. B. Rasche
Prof. Dr. Th. Schleid
The research focus of the Schleid group lies in the field of inorganic solid state chemistry comprising mulit-anionic rare-earth metal compounds and investigations on their structure-property relationships.
He gives lectures within the modules "Vertiefte Anorganische Chemie", "Anorganische Synthesechemie für Fortgeschrittene" und "Solid-State and Materials Chemistry"
Prof. Schleid is chairman of the examination comission for the eduactional students in chemitry and he is BAFöG commissioner.
Inorganic Coordination Chemistry
Prof. Dr. B. Sarkar
Inorganic Materials Chemistry
Prof. Dr. R. Niewa
The group is working in the field of Inorganic Materials Chemistry of new inorganic materials or known functional materials in a novel form. A general feature is a sophisticated synthetic approach of the substances and the understanding of the synthetic routes.
He is responsible for the modules "Anorganische Synthesechemie für Fortgeschrittene (ACIII)", "Solid State Materials Chemistry" and "Grundzüge der Angewandten Chemie" and additionally lectures within the module "Vertiefte Anorganische Chemie".
He acts as Dean of Studies for the BSc and MSc degree programs in Chemistry and in this capacity is a member of the faculty's board. He is also a member of the Senate Committee on Teaching (Senatsausschuss Lehre und Weiterbildung).
Inorganic Molecular Chemistry
Prof. Dr. Ch. Sindlinger
Prof. Sindlinger investigates the synthesis of boroles and other molecules of unusual electronic properties and states with a particular interest in structure elucidation of both – atomic connectivity and electronic structure.
He focuses on:
- Antiaromatic heterocycles and their coordination chemistry
- Low-valent main group compounds
- Hydrides and element-hydrogen bonding of heavy elements
- Experimental and computational methods of structure elucidation
- Heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy – experimental and computational
Dr. Björn Blaschkowski
Practical course "Grundlagen der Anorganischen und Analytischen Chemie (AC I)", safety delegate
Dr. Vasileios Filippou
Practical course "Allgemeine und Anorganische Chemie" for environmental engineers and process technicians; lecture "Inorganic Chemistry" for degree courses WAREM and WASTE; Analytic
PD Dr. Ingo Hartenbach
The research focus of the Hartenbach group lies within derivatives of rare-earth metal molybdates and tungstates, especially in their suitabilty as luminescence materials.
His teaching comprises organisation and tutoring within the module "Einführung in die Chemie", laboratory supervision within the module "Praktische Einführung in die Chemie" and lecturing within the module "Grundlagen der Anorganischen und Analytischen Chemie".
Dr. Hartenbach is also engaged with recent problems in X-ray structure analysis, he is the deputy radiation safety officer and construction commissioner.
