Martin Huber joins us from TU Wien for a Masters project via the Erasmus programme. Martin will be working on solvent-free reactions.
Our mechanochemical synthesis of Au(I) complexes is published in Green Chemistry as a 🔥 Hot Paper 🔥!
Shake, rattle and gold! We show 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.
