Materials consisting of inorganic and organic components can combine the best of two worlds: under certain circumstances, the so-called MOFs – short for metal-organic frameworks – are structured in the same order as crystals and are at the same time porous and deformable. This opens up the ... more

Henning Steinert, born in 1993, studied chemistry at Carl-von-Ossietzky University in Oldenburg, where he researched, among other things, the activation of Si–H bonds on titanium complexes. He is currently working on his doctorate at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Chair of Inorganic Chemistry II of Professor Dr. Viktoria Däschlein-Gessner.
The main focus of his research is the synthesis of novel ylide-substituted main group compounds and their investigation by spectroscopy and computational chemistry. Due to their electron richness, these compounds are of interest for activating small molecules and main group element catalyzed reactions.
