RESEARCH FOCUS ON
Synthetic Carbohydrate Chemistry:
Glycoside synthesis, preparative studies of antibiotic and cytostatic oligosaccharides, synthesis of complex saccharide conjugates, preparations of carbohydrate mimetics, photochemical transformation of carbohydrate derivatives.
Preparative Chemoenzymatic Synthesis:
Application of glycohydrolases and glycosyltransferases for synthesis of oligosaccharides, use of further enzyme systems for preparative purposes.
Carbohydrates as Chemical Feedstock:
Studies on the synthesis of polymers (polyesters, -urethanes, -ethers, -amides) from saccharide building units, work in the field of saccharide based surfactants.
