Our mechanochemical synthesis of gold complexes is published in Green Chemistry!

August 11th, 2020|

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!

Lukasz becomes a Docent!

Lukasz becomes a Docent after giving his lecture on aryne chemistry. Thanks go to the evaluators, all relevant Docent board members and those who attended the lecture, both physically and virtually.

We welcome Josep to the group!

January 20th, 2020|

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!

Our paper on green Au complex synthesis is published in ChemSusChem!

January 17th, 2020|

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!

Pia Wenisch joins the group!

August 27th, 2019|

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 Keuthen joins the group!

April 10th, 2019|

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.

Tobias Kaper joins the group!

March 7th, 2019|

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.
