Welcome to the Science of Sweet Salts!
Our research interests
- development and fundamental understanding of new carbohydrate based ionic liquids (CHILs)
- optimization of highly cost- and yield-efficient CHIL syntheses
- usage of CHILs as green alternatives to common ionic liquids
- application of CHILs in asymmetric synthesis, bio- and organocatalysis, polymer chemistry and more
