Welcome to the Gellrich Lab
- Welcome to the Gellrich Lab
Our research focuses on the activation of small molecules by metal-free systems. By designing our systems, we like to be inspired by nature. A centerpiece of our work are state-of-the-art QM calculations, guiding the synthetic work.

Congratulations to Max and Tizian! Their work Metal-free gem selective Dimerization of Terminal Alkynes catalyzed by a Pyridonate Borane complex has been highlighted as inside front cover in the latest issue of Catal. Sci. Technol.
We moved into a new lab and it is finally done! Now we are fully equipped with our own glovebox.
Congratulations to Tizian and Max! Their work Aldehyde Reduction by a Pyridone Borane Complex via Boron-Ligand-Cooperation: Concerted or not? is part of the special issue of Eur. J. Org. Chem. dedicated to Organic Reaction Mechanisms.
The very first piece of work of the Gellrich Group is published at Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.: Reversible Hydrogen Activation by a Pyridonate Borane Complex: Combining Frustrated Lewis Pair Reactivity with Boron-Ligand Cooperation
