Congratulations to Dr. Sebastián Martínez

After an excellent presentation and a thorough scientific discussion with the jury members – Prof. Bill Morandi, Prof. Bas de Bruin, Prof. Philippe Dauban, Dr. Joanna Wencel-Delord, and Prof. Thomas Ebbesen, Sebastián successfully defended his PhD thesis and was granted a doctorate title. Congratulations and good luck for the future! Special thanks to the jury members!

New publication in JACS!

The paper on the study of a highly selective and exceptionally active catalyst system that is driven by a novel activation strategy and features a unique Pd(I)–Pd(I) mechanism has been published as an Article in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. This method enables β-selective hydroformylation of a large range of alkenes and alkynes, including sensitive starting materials!

Congrats to all!
