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.
Two of our groups publications were highlighted by Chimia
and by Org. Process Res. Dev.
Dmitry is main-author in both cases. Congratulations!
We're really happy to welcome Benson Jelier (PostDoc) and Pascal Tripet (PhD student) to our group. We hope you have a great time, learn a lot and are as successful as can be!
Our trifluoromethylation team took yet another hit. Natalja successfully defended her dissertation.
We spent three very nice days in Preda (Graubünden) accompanied by 70 cm of new snow on saturday, sledging, skiing and relaxing in winter wonderland!
Pascals published his findings on N
-trifluoromethyl NHC ligands and their ruthenium complexes in Organometallics
Congratulations Julie! We hope you enjoyed your time with us as much as we enjoyed having you!
We're really happy for Remo and sad at the same time to let one of the most important group members go.
Dmitry, Jiri, Fabian and Bruno report their latest results in the synthesis of quaternary alpha-perfluoroalkyl lactams. Congratulations!
Julie and Nataljas findings on tandem radical fluoroalkylation–cyclization was published in Org. Lett.
