About the Author
Bernd Plietker, born in Gronau (Germany) in 1971, studied chemistry in Munster and Dresden. In 1999 he received his PhD under the guidance of Peter Metz at the University of Dresden. After postdoctoral stays in the group of Jan-Erling Backvall (Stockholm) and Barry Trost (Stanford) he began his independent research career associated with Norbert Krause (Dortmund). In 2007 he became a Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart. His research interests include the development of sustainable metal catalysis (based on ruthenium or iron complexes) and their application in the total synthesis of natural products or natural product like libraries.
He has received a Liebig fellowship and the Award of the Otto-Roehm Gedaechtnisstiftung.
