Welcome to the webpage of the Maulide Group at the University of Vienna.
We are a dynamic, international and enthusiastic group passionate about (organic) chemistry. Feel free to browse through the links on the left side to find out who we are and read about our research and publications.
- January 8, 2017: HAPPY NEW YEAR! To kick-start what we hope will be another exciting 12 months of chemistry, our work is selected to feature as Cover for Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis!
