New publication in Synthesis!

In this review article in a special issue of Synthesis – “Bürgenstock Special Section 2021 – Future Stars in Organic Chemistry’, we provide an overview of different approaches in the field of C–H borylation reactions mediated by group 9 metal-based catalysts that target the control of the activity and the selectivity of the reaction, with the main focus on recent studies.

New Publication in Science!

In this Perspective, we discuss the challenges of controlling the stereoselectivity of reactions occurring through free-radical intermediates. In the context of the recent work of Yang et al. (Science 374, 1612 (2021)), we highlight the opportunities of conducting such reactions (and beyond!) in the presence of engineered enzymes,

Congratulations to Dr. Imane Boudhil!

After a nice presentation and a scientific discussion with the jury members – Dr. Tatiana Besset, Prof. Frederic Patureau, and Prof. Thomas Ebbesen, Imane successfully defended her PhD thesis and was granted a doctorate title. Congratulations! A suitable celebration has to be postponed (hopefully later this year). Special thanks to the jury members!
