Jaime Tamayo is working on our current research topics since February 2023

For the duration of three months, he is completing an internship in our group in Leipzig through the Research Experience for Peruvian Undergraduates (REPU).

Participation on international Mass Spectrometry Conference in Maastricht and defense of a Bachelor thesis

Jonas, Harald, Markus, Robert and Fang present our results at the International Mass Spectrometry Conference in Maastricht. Marie Schäfer defends her Bachelor thesis with the title "Reactivity of the fragment ion[B12I8SCN]- in molecular layers".


Markus Rohdenburg takes part on the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Markus Rohdenburg is one of the 611 young scientists from 91 countries taking part in the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau from June 26 to July 1, 2022.


Our research is funded by a Freigeist Fellowship of the Volkswagen Foundation, by the CRC "Polymers under multiple constraints" and the Research Training Group "Hydrogen Isotopes 1,2,3H". We thank the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie for a material cost allowence.


Our primary goal is the utilization of charged molecules and their fragments – generated within a mass spectrometer – for the synthesis of condensed phase matter.
