Niggemann Research Group

HOME  Home

Welcome to the Niggemann group's website! 

What we do...

Our group is home to the development of new organic reactions, either catalyzed by early main group metals or via the reactivity of boron compounds, 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 electrophilic amination with nitro compounds.

If you are a student at whatever stage of your studies and got interested in calcium catalysis or boron chemistry, 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.
