Personal profile

Scientific Career

The research interests of Professor Shigeyoshi Inoue include the synthesis, characterization and reactivity investigation of compounds containing low-valent main group elements (Group 13, 14 and 15 elements) with unusual structures and unique electronic properties, in an effort to find novel applications. His research places particular emphasis on low-coordinate silicon and aluminium compounds.

Professor Inoue studied at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, and carried out his doctoral studies under the supervision of Professor Akira Sekiguchi, obtaining his PhD in 2008. After working as a Humboldt postdoctoral research fellow and a JSPS postdoctoral fellow with Professor Matthias Drieß at TU Berlin, in 2010 he established an independent research group there as part of the Sofja Kovalevskaja program. In 2015, he was appointed to the professorship of silicon chemistry at TUM.
