Biobased Organic Chemistry

We do fundamental research in organic chemistry using molecules and material that nature provides, the biobased building blocks. Our overall mission is to deliver clean, atom- and step-efficient one-pot syntheses for sustainable production of molecular diverse and structurally complex organic molecules tailored towards higher added-value in materials, medicines and catalysts.

Our research group is part of the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM), which is a research institute of Maastricht University (UM) located on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen. AMIBM conducts both fundamental and applied research to facilitate synergy between academia and industry.
