Catalyst-Controlled Stereoselective Barton–Kellogg Olefination

Many Congratulations. Tanno achieved an important milestone for our research: the catalyst-controlled thiiranation combined with stereospecific reductions to overcrowded alkenes, also in a fully stereodivergent manner.

Ad Hoc Adjustment of Photoredox Properties by the Late-Stage Diversification of Acridinium Photocatalysts

Well done Valeriia. Acridinium photocatalysts can now be late-stage diversified to adjust their redox properties (including the new aza-rhodol photoredox catalysts), now published in Org. Lett.

Catalyst Control over Twofold and Higher-Order Stereogenicity by Atroposelective Arene Formation

Congratulations Tanno. Our ongoing journey through the realms of atropisomeric molecules, now outlined in Acc. Chem. Res.

Monitoring Solid-phase Reactions in Self-assembled Monolayers by Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy,

Well done Dominik, Mayor and Lörtscher IBM research teams. Monitoring Solid-phase Reactions in Self-assembled Monolayers by Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy, now published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.

Catalyst control over sixfold stereogenicity

Wonderful achievement by Xingxing, Reto, Rodolphe, Christian and Daniel. Stereoselective catalysis allows to navigate stereochemical space beyond binary (Le Bel–Van ’t Hoff rule), now published in Nature Catalysis. Very proud of the team.

Organophotocatalytic Aerobic Oxygenation of Phenols in a Visible‐Light Continuous‐Flow Photoreactor

Congratulation to Joël, Dragan, Thomas and the DSM team. Let us improve sustainability for important phenol oxidations, now published in Chemistry – A European Journal.
