Synthetic Organic Chemistry | Coordination and Oxidation State Changes



We have a particular interest in the activation and functionalization of inert chemical bonds.
To generate molecular complexity, transition-metal catalysis or redox chemistry are employed.

Our synthetic approaches or strategies to establish efficient and concise routes include
i) Transition-metal-catalyzed inert bond activation of small- or biomolecules by agostic interaction
ii) Modular synthetic methods by employing molecular building blocks via transition-metal-catalysis
iii) Reversible redox processes of pi-conjugated molecules or metal-organic coordination complexes
