Welcome to the Studer Research Group at the WWU Münster
© WWU - AK Studer (mte)
The fundamental understanding and exploitation of radical processes play a key role in the research of the group at the WWU Münster. The research program is devoted to the fields of catalysis, organic synthesis, and materials science. Applications of radicals remain fundamental in the research activities of the Studer laboratory (see lab news & alumni), leading to applications in various fields such as surface chemistry, bioconjugates and natural product synthesis (see publications lectures).

In our research efforts, we are aiming to understand and exploit radical processes. We are developing unique methods and add these techniques to the toolbox of organic chemists. Along these lines, we are heavily engaged in method development, some natural product syntheses and the fabrication of hybrid materials at interfaces or in biological systems.

Over the years, many individuals have contributed to our team with enthusiasm, talent and a very own commitment. Have a look on past group pictures and all the PhDs who finally moved out into the acedemic or industry world and have made their own "rocket" start  ... (We are deeply indebted to the precision mechanics of our institute, the creators of this 'Promokete' rocket!)
