Our work on Mechanochemical C–H Methylation is accepted in Angewandte Chemie as a 🔥 Hot Paper 🔥

October 8th, 2020|

Congratulations to Shengjun, Matt, Swarna, Fredric and our collaborators: Our research into a solvent-free approach to catalytic C–H methylation, including for biologically active molecules, is published in Angewandte Chemie. Congratulations all!

Our mechanochemical synthesis of Au(I) complexes is published in Green Chemistry as a 🔥 Hot Paper 🔥!

August 11th, 2020|

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!

Lukasz becomes a Docent!

June 3rd, 2020|

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!
