Okt. 2021

New Paper in Inorganic Chemistry of the utility of mesoionic carbenes in low-valent vanadium chemistry. Congrats to the team and to Florian to his first paper from his master thesis(!).

Check the publication section for more information.

Sept. 2021

Our book chapter in Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry IV on NHC complexes of the Actinides has been published. Thank you David Mills and Steve Liddle for the invitation to summarize a field combining my favourite element and ligand!

April 2021

New Paper in Chemical Science with the Munz Group and the Guldi Group on Bright Luminescent s-Block Carbenes. Thank you all for the great collaboration and congratulations to all authors!

Check the publication section for more information.

April 2021

Ina Kopp from Paderborn University joined the group for her master thesis! A warm welcome and good luck!, We are looking forward to some awesome carbene chemistry!

Feb. 2021

New Paper in Angewandte Chemie. Check out the unexpected eta3 coordination. of the 2-phosphaethynthiolate anion at lanthanum and its rearrangement to a heavy this-fulminate!

Check the publication section for more information.

Feb. 2021

Many new people join the Lab: We welcome Florian Neururer and Daniel Leitner performing their master thesis in the group.Benjamin Wittwer will start his PhD with us. Good luck and a warm welcome to everyone. We are glad to have in the group!

Jan. 2021

Read about the catalytic potential and mechanistic investigations of molybdenum NHC complexes in nitroarene reductions in our latest Organometallics article.

Sept. 2020


See how functionalized ligands, e.g. phosphaureates can be build up using high-valent lanthanum(III) phosphide complexes as well as their further functionalisation to heterobimetallic complexes.

July 2020

You want to know how well dipyrrin ligands and high-valent molybdenum(VI) complexes fit together? Check our our latest paper in Inorg Chem!

May 2020

Two new papers on low-valent uranium chemistry featuring beta-diketiminiate and 4Cp supporting ligands. I am deeply thankful to everyone involved in these papers and made it possible for me conduct chemistry with my favorite element: Uranium"

Mar. 2020

Four uranium atoms, a square and a nitride. Read more in our recent Chem. Commun. article.

Jan. 2020

New research from the group. We are delighted that overall two papers have come out this month. One still from Stephan PhD time in the Sarkar group, the other one contains our seminal work on anilidophosphine ligands in lanthanide chemistry.

Check them out in the publications section.

Jan. 2020

Stephan moved to Innsbruck. I am very happy to be here and thanks to everyone from Uni Innsbruck for the warm welcome!

Nov. 2019

Our latest collaboration with the Arnold group and the Long group on bulky uranium sandwiches has been published in Inorg. Chem. I feel really delighted to have worked with every one of you on this project. Special thanks also to Micheal, Daniel and Fabian for all their efforts! Link

Oct. 2019

Stephan has received a call from the Leopold-Franzens-University in Innsbruck. The group will move in January 2020 to its new destination

Oct. 2019

We are happy to announce that Stephan has received a call from the Leopold-Franzens-University in Innsbruck, Austria. The group will be moving in early 2020. Stay tuned for more updates

Oct. 2019

We are delighted to announce that our recent contribution in Organometallics has been highlighted as a supplementory cover. Check out the article and cover here!

Sept. 2019

Our recent contribution on the use of new chelating mesoionic carbenes has been highlighted as the front cover on Dalton Transactions. I am very proud of my students for their fantastic work. Check out the article and cover here.
