The project concerns the site-selective (i.e., chemoselective) acylation of unprotected carbohydrates using oligopeptide organocatalysts. This highly challenging project aims at selective OH-group recognition with the peptide and transfer of acyl functions through N-π-methylimidazol moieties that operate as catalysts with anhydride electrophiles.
The Doctoral Programme consists of an experimental project combined with a three-year interdisciplinary graduate course curriculum leading to a dissertation. Seminars and courses are conducted in English; German language courses are offered for international students.
