Tailor-made molecules

Prof. Dr. Rudolf Pietschnig

The underlying project provides tailor-made molecules in order to establish structure property relationships between physical parameters related to chirality and structural features on a molecular level. Within the project, we will aim at elucidating the relevance of structural features on the response obtained for the complementary physical methods available in this CRC. As a consequence of the different methodologies two general sets of chiral compounds will be envisaged, one being as small as possible (in terms of number of atoms), the other one featuring chromophoric units to allow for absorption bands in the visible region.
