This research work was carried out at Department of chemistry, Universität Regensburg,
Germany from Nov’2002 to Mar’2004 and at Department of Chemistry, Phillips Universität
Marburg, Germany, from Apr’2004 until Apr’2005, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Armin
Geyer.
I am grateful to Prof. Dr. Armin Geyer for his support, earnest guidance, cordial nature, and
parental care. His innovative ideas and guidance made me appreciate his inborn capabilities as a
leading international scientist and a teacher. Because of his jovial and friendly nature, my
association with him is a great endeavor.
I am also indebted to my group members for their constant help and support with academic,
personal, and administrative problems. Only due to their helping hands, I am able to finish my
work nicely. They maintained friendly atmosphere in the lab and we have together spent happy
time. My greatest memento is their friendship, as I have enjoyed my stay in Germany thoroughly
just because of their support.
I am thankful to Rolf Hörger for valuable discussions, constant help regarding administrative and
personal problems.
I thank to Markus Pfitzenmaier for discussions on different NMR and chemical problems and I
am also thankful to him for hot coffee breaks with equally hot discussions about girls.
I appreciate Dominik Kohr for his continuous help, valuable discussions, and suggestions
regarding analytical part.
I am thankful to Harald Seger for discussions about chemistry and for many late evening rides
back home.
I thank Ralph Wieneke for the help regarding practical students and protocols.
I also express my gratitude to Dr. Frank Noll for numerous discussions, critical remarks, and
valuable advice on the AFM measurement and analysis.
I express my thanks to Susanne Schellenberg for her help to tackle administration problems in
easy and quick ways and to Michael Marsch for his help regarding computers in an efficient way.
In addition, my thanks to Katja Kräling for her help for solid phase peptide synthesis reactions
and to Cordula Braun, Sonja Eckhardt, Mariam Lauz, and Steffen Loh for the friendly
atmosphere.
As well, I remember Dr. Karoly Agoston, Dr. Daniela Fischer, and Dr. Peter Tremmel for
valuable discussions, recommendations, and suggestions.
My sincere appreciation for my association with Dr. H. B. Borate, Dr. P. R. Rajamohanan, and
Latha Shivdasan (all from NCL, Pune, India) for their help, encouragement and support during
my early scientific phase.
The biggest support came from my parents (Sharayu and Vinayak Deshmukh). I am greatly
indebted to them. Also thanks to my brother (Dr. Mandar Deshmukh) and my sister-in-law
(Mrunal Deshmukh). They were my first mentors and without all their help in many difficult
situations, I would have not been able to accomplish this thesis.
