Dr Moritz F. Kuehnel
Moritz studied Chemistry at Freie Universität Berlin and obtained his PhD under the supervision of Dieter Lentz, developing homogeneous catalysts for selective C-F bond activation (link to PhD thesis). This synthetic work covered a broad range of inorganic chemistry and he received aditional training in all spects of fluorine chemistry within the DFG Doctoral Training Centre ‘Fluorine as a Key Element‘. After a short stay with Thomas Braun at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, he joined Erwin Reisner’s lab in Cambridge to develop molecular electrocatalysts for CO2 reduction within the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Sustainable Syngas Chemistry (full CV).
Max is a Erasmus+ fellow from Freie Univerität Berlin studying for an MChem. He obtained his BSc under the supervision of Dieter Lentz at Freie Univerität Berlin working on the synthesis of fluorinated buckybowls. His current research focuses on supramolecular immobilisation of redox-active molecules.
Michael is a 1st year PhD student on an EPSRC studentship. He obtained his undergraduate degree from University of Glasgow. His research focuses on unconventional reaction media for photocatalytic fuel production.
