see who we are and what we do (besides science)

Here you can find some pictures from our group. Our group pictures show you how our group evolved during the years since the start in Cologne (1997-2001), our time in Wurzburg (2002-2008) and finally here in Essen (since 2008). In Wurzburg our group participated in the annual soccer tornament Chemcup. See the pictures of our team. We won the tonament twice, by the way. You can also find some pictures of various group activities and events, as well as pictures from the PhD defenses of our group members.
