The Ameloot Group welcomes its newest team member, Martin Obst. Originally from Germany, Martin studied chemistry at the Universities of Freiberg and Jena. In 2018, he obtained his doctoral degree in Chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Burkhard König at the University of Regensburg, where he worked in the development of methods for solvent-free photocatalysis and organic synthesis in deep-eutectic solvents. In the Ameloot group, Martin will focus on surface coatings with ionic liquids and deep-eutectic solvents, which will then be used for certain specialized applications e.g. catalysis.
