Congrats to our DFG postdoctoral fellow Robert J. Mayer, who was recently profiled in Angewandte Chemie. Check it out here.
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!
The Moran Lab celebrates 10 great years! Several former group members from around Europe were able to attend the celebration and shared short presentations about their jobs and life since leaving the lab. A day to remember!
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!
Dr. Robert Mayer presented his postdoctoral research from our group in front of an audience of numerous Nobel laureates at the 2022 Lindau Nobel laureate meeting. Only 14 out of roughly 600 junior attendees were invited to present. Well done, Robert!

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!
Robert, Harpreet and Sophia’s re-evaluation and mechanistic study of metal ion-catalyzed transamination under biological conditions has been accepted for publication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Congrats!
Congratulations to Dr. Robert Mayer, who has obtained a postdoctoral fellowship from the DFG to work on mechanistic challenges in prebiotic chemistry. Well deserved!
A warm welcome to Robert Mayer, who joins us from the group of Prof. Herbert Mayr and Prof. Armin Ofial at the LMU Munich, where he worked on kinetic, mechanistic, and computational studies to elucidate fundamental reactivity trends of different classes of electrophiles and nucleophiles. In our group, Robert will work on mechanistic challenges in prebiotic chemistry. Welcome, Robert!
