Welcome to the Gaich Research Group
Our group is dedicated to the total synthesis of natural products with a unique and complex molecular architecture.
In our synthetic planning, Nature serves as a constant source of inspiration, owing to the elegance by which it assem-
bles the most intricate and functional structures. To us, elegance in synthetic terms is best reflected by a domino
reaction sequence. Starting from a rather simple molecular intermediate, an avalanche of bond-forming events is
triggered. It results in the construction of a highly complex molecular architecture – ideally the natural product itself.
