Valentyn and Marie’s paper on the 1,2-aminoarylation of alkenes to directly form unprotected primary amines has been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie International Edition. Our fourth paper in that journal in the past 9 months! Congrats!
Robert’s study on quantitatively comparing the hydride donor ability of the biological cofactors NADH and NADPH with standard reducing agents from organic synthesis was published in Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry. Congrats!
Congrats to our DFG postdoctoral fellow Robert J. Mayer, who was recently profiled in Angewandte Chemie. Check it out here.
Sophia’s study on how metal catalysts can allow hydrogen gas to drive part of the reverse Krebs cycle under mild nonenzymatic conditions has been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie International Edition. She even found that iron-based meteorites can promote these reactions! Congrats!
Robert’s mechanistic study on reduction and reductive amination of ketoacids under simple nonenzymatic conditions has been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie International Edition. Congrats and impressive work!
Marie’s paper on the generation of trifluoromethylated all-carbon quaternary centres through the hydroarylation of trifluoromethylated styrenes is accepted for publication in ACS Catalysis. Thanks to Robert for the last-minute mechanistic help. Congrats!
Joseph reviews Nick Lane’s new book on the Krebs cycle for Science. Please have a read (the review and the book itself)!
Nik, Sergiu and Robert’s paper on how HFIP facilitates enamide hydroarylation is accepted for publication in Chemical Science. Lots of important mechanistic insight in this one and a great example of how collaboration makes a paper better. Congrats!
Jing’s work on a non enzymatic analog of pyrimidine nucleobase biosynthesis has been accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie International Edition. Congrats!
Marie and Shaofei’s rapid method for the reduction of epoxides to primary alcohols has been accepted for publication in ACS Catalysis. Congrats!
