Our work lies substantially in synthetic organic chemistry with a special focus on the separation of enantiomers by crystallization. This approach enables us to develop original chiral building blocks and scalable synthetic procedures for optically active natural products, mostly insect pheromones. Some of them have been in great demand by domestic forestry.
