Prof. Dr. David Scheschkewitz
Research in the Scheschkewitz group focuses on the chemistry of low-valent silicon species, in particular, compounds containing Si-Si double bonds and small unsaturated silicon cluster compounds. Our research interests range from the fundamental properties of such compounds, such as reactivity, bonding and structure to the use of such compounds in new synthetic chemistry. Ultimately we seek to develop the chemistry of low-valent silicon species towards practical applications, for example the development of silicon-containing conducting polymers, or improved control of silicon device fabrication.
