Robert M. Reich received his Master of Science Degree in 2013 from the Technical University of Munich where he finished his phd under the guidance of Prof. Fritz E. Kühn in 2016. Since 2017 he works in the group of Prof. Fritz E. Kühn as Scientist and as Manager of International Affairs for the Department of Chemistry.
His research fields include classical organometallic chemistry for various applications. Among others, the use of N-heterocyclic carbenes for catalytic and medicinal applications, ionic liquids in electrochemistry, catalytic conversion of CO2 and two-phase epoxidation catalysis.
