Topic 7

Resolution on a molecular level: Exploring the separation of racemates using chiral halogen bond donors. 

About the topic:

Our ultimate goal with this project is the resolution of racemic compound-mixtures using chiral halogen bond (XB) donors as cofactors for crystallization. The work should focus on the modification of existing XB-donors with chiral groups and a possible substrate scope. We previously published some results on co-crystallization using perfluorinated XB-donors.

What they are looking for in students:

Students should generally be experienced in lab work, ideally with experience in synthesis or crystallization.
