Group of Dr. Axel Jacobi von Wangelin


Thank you for visiting the AJvW group websites. Our laboratories are situated in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cologne.

Our group is home to a wide array of research activities revolving around the themes of catalysis and synthesis. We address questions of sustainable chemistry and aim at the development of operationally simple, synthetically efficacious and environmentally benign synthesis methodology. Current areas of investigation include practical metal-catalyzed cross-coupling and hydrogenation reactions, reactions with N-heterocyclic carbenes, organocatalytic cycloaddition reactions, asymmetric Lewis acid catalysis and ligand design.

We cordially invite prospective students at all stages of their studies to stop by our laboratory or email us to learn more about research opportunities in our group.
