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!
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!
Congratulations to Jagadeesh as well as our collaborators in Göttingen, Lutz Ackermann and Gandeepan Parthasarathy!
Congratulations to Karthik, Carina and our collaborators. It turns out you can use Ru catalysts to C-H silylate heteroarenes with or without directing groups, no elimination of side chains, with no need for protecting groups and, if you look a little closer, you'll glimpse a sneaky C4-H activation of gramines!
