The Hansmann group is a synthetic organic group with overlap into the areas of main-group chemistry, spectroscopy, electro-chemistry and computational studies. Currently, we are interested in the synthesis of redox-active organic molecules and their application in photo-catalysis and redox-flow batteries. Furthermore, we are interested in unusual molecules such as strong carbon based donor ligands or unusual P-heterocycles.
We are currently looking for highly motivated students to join our research team and PhD positions are available. Our group recently received funding by the Emmy-Noether program of the DFG. In this project we are looking for students to work in the area of organic electron donors, electro- and photo-chemistry. Please consider applying to: Max Hansmann
We just received funding of the European Research Council (ERC Starting Grant) for the project CC-CHARGED. We are looking for highly motivated PhD students or Postdocs to join our team. The research will involve the synthesis of new stable organic compound classes, novel C-C bond polarization strategies, the synthesis of new reagents for organic synthesis and more. If you are interested please get in touch: Max Hansmann

Our group received funding from the DFG as part of the Emmy Noether program. The research will combine experimental work from organic and inorganic chemistry and focus on the application of strong electron donors, such as organic hybrid molecules, in the fields of electro- and photo‑chemistry.

In collaboration with the research groups Theatό (KIT) and Bresser (Helmholtz Ulm) we received funding for the development of organic polymer batteries (DFG funding program SPP 2248). This interdisciplinary project (small radicals, polymer synthesis and battery assembly) will focus on the synthesis and physical characterization of small redox-active, paramagnetic organic molecules.
