The new systems are expected to affect catalytic activity and to stabilise reactive particles.
Professor Viktoria Däschlein-Gessner, member of the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV, was awarded an ERC Starting Grant.
Viktoria Däschlein-Gessner studied chemistry in Marburg and Würzburg and obtained her doctorate in 2009 at the Technical University Dortmund. Following a research stay at the University of California in Berkeley, she led an Emmy Noether independent junior research group at the University of Würzburg, where she habilitated in 2015. She has worked at RUB since July 2016 and holds the Chair for Inorganic Chemistry II at the Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry. She is also a member of the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV (Ruhr Explores Solvation, EXC 1069), which is currently funded by the Excellence Initiative.
In her ERC Grant, she develops new ligand systems.
