THE PÖPPLER GROUP: ORGANIC STRUCTURAL CHEMISTRY

Teaching...

...during the summer term

Scientific knowledge, application to real world problems and science communication:

During the characterization of molecules, aggregates and more complex assemblies, a variety of puzzle pieces have to be joint and correctly assembled to improve our understanding of such materials. In this course, the focus will be on X-ray diffraction, solid-state NMR and computation for the investigation of complex solid materials. It involves appreciating the complementarity of different experimental, analytical and theoretical tools. Participants will learn that not one single analytical tool is THE answer, but that their combination can yield fascinating insights. Furthermore, participants will start developing the skills when which of the tools would be most appropriate.

 

Schedule (also see graphical representation on the right)

Phase 1 (term time – Vorlesungszeit): Blended learning phase with online course material and accompanying seminars as fundament for the further use of the toolbox (X-ray, solid-state NMR, computation) to characterize solid materials.

Phase 2 (5 days, block course): Application to real research problems gives an answer to “what do we learn this for”. Participants will work on small research questions including data analysis, combining insights from complementary methods and improving the understanding of the solid materials under study.

Phase 3 (5 days block course): Finally, science communication will be trained. Participants learn what a good presentation of research data could look like, how it can be achieved and how this can be evaluated.

This lecture is taught in German and consists of two parts: inorganic and organic chemistry. Prof. Pöppler teaches the part on organic chemistry in the summer term.  The course design and course content is adapted from Prof. Anke Krüger who teaches this module during the winter term. You will obtain a broad overview of how to name organic molecules, how to talk about stereochemistry, the central reactions and reaction types in organic chemistry and also about specific compounds such as aromatic molecules and natural products. An outline of this part of the lecture on organic chemistry can be found in the image on the right side.

Additionally, the topics of the lecture are supported by a “Tutorium”, where the content is deepened with exercises.

...during the winter term

This is an interactive seminar with a practical focus on the recording and processing of 1D and 2D NMR spectra and usually taught in English. Refreshing the basics of NMR as well as talking about several experiments and their challenges (including NOESY and DOSY) is combined with practical units focussing on recording and processing of NMR data. You are also welcomed to bring you own “NMR problems” to be discussed during the seminar.

For the last third of the term, you can choose between several more specific topics such as solid-state NMR, quantitative NMR etc., where the topics with the most votes are discussed within the remaining course days. An exemplary schedule from the winter term 2020/2021 can be found on the right.

This lecture is shared between Prof. Lambert and Prof. Pöppler supported by Dr. Ledermann (tutorium). The teaching language is German with small summaries in English during the part of Prof. Pöppler.

The second half of the class taught by Prof. Pöppler focusses on the three main areas: (1) Oxidation and Reduction Reactions in Organic Chemistry, (2) Aromatic Molecules and (3) Rearrangement Reactions. (2) is the central and largest part and concerned with the concept of aromaticity, monoclyclic, polycyclic and heterocyclic aromatic compounds and their general and specific reactions with electrophiles, nucleophiles and radicals. Through the study of reactions mechanisms, characteristic reagents and considerations regarding the rate determining step the students will acquire a toolbox of reactions allowing them to explain and also design short reaction sequences to obtain desired products.

This lecture is shared between Prof. Würthner, Prof. Lehmann, Prof. Kurth, Priv.-Doz. Beuerle, and Prof. Pöppler. Supramolecular Chemistry is taught in English and Prof. Pöppler is responsible for Chapter 2 - Determination of Binding Constants and the corresponding excercise.

...throughout the year

As a Master's Student (Chemistry), we are happy to have you for your "Forschungspraktikum" (OC: 8 weeks, Supra: 4 weeks).
More information can be found on WueStudy (Forschungspraktikum OC) and WueStudy (Forschungspraktikum Supra).

For Students in the Teaching Degree Programm (Lehramt GY, vertieft), the "Forschungspraktikum" can also be done with our group.
For more infomation, please visit WueStudy.

Students from other degrees need to check their ASPO on whether a credited internship is possible. In any case, a non-credited internship is possible.

If you're interested, feel free to contact  Malte Mildner.

As a Bachelor's Student (Chemistry), we are happy to have you for your "Orientierungspraktikum" (4 weeks).
 

Students from other degrees need to check their ASPO on whether a credited internship is possible. In any case,  a non-credited internship is possible.
 

If you're interested, feel free to contact  Malte Mildner.

Towards the end of your studies, you'll need to write a thesis. This might be a Bachelor's or Master's Thesis, or even a Zulassungsarbeit. If you're interested in expanding your knowledge with our techniques and in becoming part of our group, just contact Malte Mildner.

We're looking forward to working with you!
