Niggemann Research Group

Welcome to the Niggemann group's website! 

What we do...

Our group is home to the development of new organic reactions catalyzed by early main group metals, to ultimately provide valuable and sustainable alternatives to transition metal catalyzed reactions. Current research interests span from novel methods for cation generation over cycloisomerization reactions to the manipulation of non-activated C-H bonds in sp3-carbon centers. And all of this with (super)calcium as the catalyst!

If you are a student at whatever stage of your studies and got interested in calcium catalysis, please stop by our laboratories or e-mail us to learn more about research opportunities for your bachelor/master thesis or your "Forschungspraktikum" in our group.
