Rehbein Research
Modern Physical Organic Chemistry
Currently  our team consists of 6 PhD students from 3 different countries. Want to be part of it? Drop me a line!
We love to understand chemistry in its very principles taking the dynamics into account. And we do so with a combination of experiments and simulations. For more info: Here you go!
Currently the counter is at 46 publications on mechanistic studies of various chemistry.

Communication is key, not only in science. Invited talks all over the world show how well mechanistic studies are recognized in the community. List of previous & furture lectures.
Lectures in catalysis, modern physical organic chemistry and computational chemistry. Supported by self-learning quizzes and screencasts.
We are currently part of the RTG 2620 'ion pairs', the CRC 325 'assembly-controlled photocatalysis' both funded by the DFG and the IDK 'Photo-Electro-Catalysis (PEC)' funded by the Elite networkt of Bavaria. Our collaboration partners are all over Germany and beyond. Check out our recent publications!

Current Funding
DFG RTG 2620 , 2 PhD positions,

Originally trained as a synthetic organic chemist and even doing natural product synthesis, I was - over the time - more and more intrigued by the chemistry that did not turn out as expected. That's how I got into the field of physical organic chemistry. Always seeking a greater unterstanding of the experiemetnal obersvation at a molecular or even electronic level.
