Stauch Group


Our group focuses on Theoretical and Computational Chemistry. We develop and apply quantum chemical methods for the calculation of spectroscopic properties of molecules under various external influences (e.g. mechanical force, pressure, temperature). Please refer to the Research page for more details.


November 16th, 2020

Patrick begins his research internship today, in which he applies computational methods to investigate molecular tweezers. Welcome, Patrick!


October 19th, 2020

Björn's research internship begins today. Welcome! Björn will focus on mechanophores based on anthracene. He is going to test various activation mechanisms like mechanical force and hydrostatic pressure.


October 9th, 2020

We are currently offering a PhD position, which is part of an interdisciplinary project aiming at the development of materials for space exploration. The application deadline is November 6th, 2020.


October 1st, 2020

Tarek Scheele starts as a PhD student in our group. He will work on the mechanical properties of molecules in strong external electric fields. Welcome!


October 1st, 2020

In our new paper we present a quantum chemical method for geometry optimizations of molecules and molecular crystals under hydrostatic pressure. The method is called X-HCFF and will be available in Q-Chem 5.4.


September 21st, 2020

Hannah starts her research internship in our group. She uses a pressure model to simulate exploding molecules. Welcome!


September 10th, 2020

Lennart's research internship and Gheorghe's Bachelor's thesis culminated in our new paper, in which we investigate how small molecules can be released from deformed polymers. Congrats to Lennart, Gheorghe and Sourabh!


August 21st, 2020

Tarek submits his Master's thesis. Congratulations! He will join our group as a PhD student in October.


August 20th, 2020

Congratulations, Yannik from the Staubitz group, for publishing your paper on polycyclic aromatic systems containing boron and nitrogen!


August 3rd, 2020
