We develop hypervalent iodine based trifluormethylation reagents for direct electrophilic trifluoromethylation.
We are interested in the improvement and understanding of catalytic systems and we mainly focus on the development of new chiral ligands based on ferrocene.
Julie and Nataljas findings on tandem radical fluoroalkylation–cyclization was published in Org. Lett. Congratulations!
Oli reports his findings on S-trifluoromethylation as a combination of computational and experimental studies in Chem. Eur. J. Congrats!
Jiri and Julies paper on expanding the scope of hypervalent iodane reagents to perfluoroalkylation in Chem. Eur. J. is out. Congrats!
Dmitry published his finding on lewis acid catalyzed synthesis of α-trifluoromethyl esters and lactones in Organic Letters, congratulations!
We're happy to welcome Ewa Pietrasiak and Mona Wagner, our two new PhD students to the Togni group.
Rinos Paper on P-Trifluoromethyl ligands derived from Josiphos is out.
Pascal and Remos paper is published in Organometallics. They discribe new N-trifluoromethylated NHC ligands, their coordination chemistry and catalytic application. Congratulations!
