The author

Personal

I currently live in Berlin and have finished my study of chemistry. Now I am working to small projects, reading interesting literature, going on trips and always learn new things.

Motivation

I myself started interested in natural substances with a research internship at Essence Naturelles Corses. The company is specialized in the production of essential oils and extracts. They mainly use steam distillation and the alcoholic extraction. The aim of my research was the isolation of coumarin from the tonka bean.

As a chemistry student I was fascinated by the variety of ingredients of natural products. Logically, I deepened my knowledge of natural products. In particular, I was also interested in the origin of natural products, so for the plants that produce these natural products.

Another exciting area is the effect of natural products. Since this is also often unclear, this remains an exciting research topic for the future.

This wiki was made for the seminar “Herbal natural products” offered by me. The content should be well structured and made clearly available for the students in this wiki. Meanwhile, this wiki has become independent and is always filled with new content.

Skills

  • degree in Chemistry (diploma, HU Berlin)
  • internship experience in the isolation of natural products (Essences Naturelles Corses)
  • preparation, processing and implementation of teaching about natural products at HU Berlin (Albrecht Daniel Thaer Institute)
  • focus on plant natural products
  • focus on synthetic chemistry
