Research Group Inorganic Chemistry in Liquid Ammonia

Welcome to the website of the Korber group


Research in our group is focused on the preparation and chemical transformation of new compounds in anhydrous liquid ammonia, and the crystallization and characterization of the obtained ammonia-rich solvate crystals. Besides investigations of the chemical structure and hydrogen bonding in ammoniates, special attention is paid to the field of molecular homo- and heteroatomic cluster anions and chalcogenido metallates of group 14 and 15.
