Welcome to the homepage of the Schmalz group. We belong to the Department of Chemistry of the University of Cologne. Our laboratories are deeply interested in the synthesis of complex, in most cases bioactive organic compounds, such as natural products, thereof derived analogs and organometallic compounds. In cooperation with research groups of other disciplines (medicine, pharmacy) as well as industry our target compounds are tested and further structurally optimized. Further research topics are asymmetric metal catalysis, macromolecular chemistry and the development of convenient and creative synthetic methodologies.
