"Development of new homogeneous and silica bound ruthenium catalysts for olefin metathesis"

Dr. Kati Vehlow (born in 1976) studied chemistry at the University of Potsdam after completing her training to become a chemical lab technician. She began work on her doctoral thesis in 2004 at Merck Company and moved to the Technical University of Berlin in 2005. In March 2007, she completed her doctoral thesis in the Organic Chemistry Group of Professor Dr. Siegfried Blechert. Entitled “Development of New Homogeneous and Silica-Gel Supported Ruthenium Catalysts for Olefin Metathesis,“ Kati Vehlow’s thesis dealt with the development and optimization of special catalysts for olefin metathesis; she thus worked in the same field as Nobel Prize laureate Prof. Richard Schrock. So far, her work has resulted in two patents, including a worldwide patent. Since 2007, she has been head of chemical/physical analysis in the quality control department of SANDOZ Industrial Products GmbH in Frankfurt.
