Cluster-Based Materials – Welcome to the Homepage of the Dehnen Group


We are interested in multinary, non-oxidic cluster and network compounds, which due to their special electronic and structural properties are highly important for basic research in inorganic as well as materials chemistry. The main synthetic approach pursued in our group makes use of precursor compounds with binary main group element units.
