Welcome to the Seitz Research Group!


Our research revolves around the fascinating properties of lanthanoid functional materials, especially in the area of luminescence and magnetism.



New Angewandte Chemie Paper on Cr Luminescence

Dezember 07, 2017

In cooperation with Katja Heinze (U Mainz), Ute Resch-Genger (BAM Berlin) and Markus Gerhards (U Kaiserslautern), we have realized near-IR emitting chromium(III) complexes that show quantum yields in solution at ambient temperature of up to 30%. Key to the success is the deuteration of the ligand scaffold that we and the Heinze group have developed. These great results have been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie and can be found here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/anie.201711350


Two new master theses

October 17, 2017

Tobias and Jens have started their master theses in the group. Tobias is working on triboluminescent lanthanoid complexes, Jens is designing and synthesizing new ligands for luminescent transition metal and lanthanoid complexes. Welcome and have fun!


Top Lecturer Vote for Michael

Michael has been voted one of the top lecturers (3rd out of 352) by the students in the Faculty of Medicine Tübingen for last year's course in introductory Inorganic Chemistry.


New Inorganic Chemistry Paper

July 13, 2017

Our latest adventure into the development of new lanthanoid cryptate features has been published in Inorganic Chemistry (DOI: 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.7b01407). Elisabeth and Carolin have shown that certain cryptates can be chirally resolved and show extreme configurational stability under very challenging conditions. Congrats for this nice piece of work!
