Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl

With a background in organic synthesis Kurt Gothelf’s research is founded upon organic chemistry. About half of the members in the groups engage in organic synthesis, often in relation to DNA conjugation.

  • Synthesis of nucleoside analogues
  • Synthesis of monomers for conjugated polymers and graphene nanoribbons
  • Synthesis of compounds for supramolecular surface chemistry
  • Synthesis of phosphoramidites of linkers and ligands for DNA synthesis
  • Automated DNA synthesis
  • Development of new methods in DNA conjugation, such as light activatable acyl groups
