Concept Paper in ChemPhotoChem

Our new Concept paper highlighting catalytic reactions combining N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) organocatalysis with light activation is out now in ChemPhotoChem.  Light irradiation can open up new reactivity pathways for NHC organocatalysis either as part of a dual catalytic NHC/photoredox system or even in the absence of an additional photocatalyst. Congratulations to Andreas & Michael! You can check out their work here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/cptc.202000120

Corona-Forschung in der Biochemie

Die Berliner Biotech-Firma Molox GmbH und ein Team am Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) haben ein Konsortium aus regionalen Forschergruppen und BASF initiiert. Gemeinsam wollen sie einen Startpunkt für die Entwicklung eines möglichen Wirkstoffs gegen das neue Coronavirus identifizieren. Ziele potenzieller Hemmstoffe werden bestimmte SARS-CoV-2-Proteine sein, die die Ausbreitung oder Infektiosität der Viren begünstigen. An den Forschungsarbeiten sind auch Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler der Freien Universität Berlin beteiligt.

The Group welcomes 2 new PhD Students

Welcome to our two newest group members Arushi Garg and Michael Jakob who both begin their PhD studies on the 1st April. Arushi and Michael are both recipients of Elsa Neumann scholarships from the state of Berlin. Arushi will work on synthetic organofluorine chemistry while Michael will investigate photochemical organocatalysed reactions.
