Shake, rattle and gold! Our paper shows that, whether you start from a C–H or a C–B bond, you don't need solvent or long reaction times to get an aryl-Au(I) complex – even with a bioactive molecule. Congrats to Fredric, Zachary and Sebastian who have literally been grinding out these results!
We welcome Dr. Zachary Giustra to the group. Zachary joins us from Boston College. He will work on greener and more efficient synthetic methods.
Josep Esteve Guasch joins us to carry out a 6 month research project in the group. He will be working on some new aryne chemistry. Welcome!
Triols and triturations! Our work on the green and efficient synthesis of Au(I) complexes is published in ChemSusChem! Congratulations to Fredric, Ann-Cathrin and our collaborators, Andreas Orthaber and Paul Gates! This is is the first of several upcoming studies we are working on that address greener synthesis as well as Au chemistry. Keep your eyes peeled!
Lukasz gives an invited lecture at CiQUS at the University of Santiago de Compostela! Huge thanks to Dolores, Enrique and Diego for absolutely fantastic hospitality and very stimulating discussions.
Matt & Fredric have presented their latest results at the 2019 ACS National meeting in San Diego, California. Their work involves arynes, Au, boron and mechanochemistry.
We welcome Pia Wenisch to the group. Pia joins us from FAU Erlangen in Germany via the Erasmus program. Pia will be working closely with Shengjun on literally trying to grind out some results in one of our C-H functionalization projects.
Yannick joins the group from Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster. He will be working with us on trying to bend arynes this way or that. Welcome, Yannick.
We welcome Tobias Kaper to the group, who joins from Carl von Ossietzky Universität of Oldenburg via the Erasmus scheme. Tobias will work on a joint project between the Dyrager group and our group.
