Prof. Dr. Thorsten Bach



Research Areas

The research of Prof. Bach (b. 1965) is focused on organic synthesis chemistry, in particular stereoselective transformations. He has developed new methods using, among others, photochemical processes, the research into and use of new catalytic reactions (C-H activation, oxidation catalysis, Lewis acid catalysis) and the total synthesis of complex natural products (including GE 2270 A, meloscine, podophyllotoxin, punctaporonin C).
