This contribution gives an overview on the different subjects treated in our group. One of our fundamental interests lies in the synthesis and study of low-dimensional polymer and molecular solid state structures. We have chosen several synthetic approaches in order to obtain such compounds. Firstly, the concept of cutting out structural fragments from a solid state structure of a binary compound will be explained on behalf of BaI2. Oxygen donor ligands, used as chemical scissors on BaI2, allow obtaining three-, two-, one- and zero-dimensional derived compounds depending on their size and concentration. Thus, a structural genealogy tree for BaI2 can be established. This method, transferred t..
