Welcome to the Seitz Research Group!


Our research revolves around the fascinating properties of lanthanoid functional materials, especially in the area of luminescence and magnetism.



New Angewandte Chemie Paper on Cr Luminescence

Dezember 07, 2017

In cooperation with Katja Heinze (U Mainz), Ute Resch-Genger (BAM Berlin) and Markus Gerhards (U Kaiserslautern), we have realized near-IR emitting chromium(III) complexes that show quantum yields in solution at ambient temperature of up to 30%. Key to the success is the deuteration of the ligand scaffold that we and the Heinze group have developed. These great results have been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie and can be found here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/anie.201711350


New PhD student Jens Kalmbach
