Welcome to the webpage of the IRTG 2678 (International Research Training group) — Functional π-Systems: Activation, Interaction and Application (pi-Sys).
The University of Münster is establishing a new Research Training Group funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). An international team of 23 researchers from the universities of Münster and Nagoya in Japan is standing behind the doctoral program entitled "Functional pi-Systems: Activation, Interaction and Application". The experts will focus on the interface between materials research and organic synthesis as well as catalysis and biological applications. The Research Training Group will be funded for an initial period of four and a half years — from October 2021 to March 2025. The spokespersons of the program are Prof. Armido Studer from the Organic Chemistry Institute of the WWU and Prof. Shigehiro Yamaguchi from Nagoya University.
