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.

Today Sourabh published a new preprint! In his manuscript he proposes to control the reversible isomerization of spiropyran to merocyanine by applying hydrostatic pressure or mechanical forces.

Today we did a canooing tour on the Wümme as our first group activity. Here we also took our new group picture, make sure to check it out!

Sourabh shows in his new preprint, that it is possible to 'trap' transition states by applying pressure.

Our previous research intern Sanna started today to write her Master's thesis within our group. She will develop an analysis tool to investigate geometry deformations on surfaces.

Welcome back Sanna!

Phil begins his research internship today. He will use computational methods to investigate the effects of hydrostatic pressure on the spectroscopic properties of helicenes.

Welcome to the group Phil!


April 23rd, 2021

Filippo from the group of Susan Köppen has a new preprint, in which he models the adsorption of glyphosate on a TiO2 surface. Stay tuned for updates!


April 1st, 2021

What a great day for our group! Chieh-Min begins his PhD thesis in an interdisciplinary project that aims at the development of novel materials for space exploration, Julius begins to work on his Master's thesis, in which he models a protein-chaperone complex to understand disease-relevant processes, and Sanna concentrates on emergent properties in computational high-pressure chemistry during her research internship. We're looking forward to a lot of exciting science!

Dominik, a former member of the Nachtsheim group, has a new paper on substituted 2-(oxazolinyl)-phenols. Congratulations!


February 15th, 2021

We are very happy to welcome Felix Zeller as a new PhD student in our group. Felix is going to develop and use various methods to distort molecules. We are looking forward to a lot of exciting science!
