New Paper in Organic Letters

Our latest paper exploring benzothiazolium salts as reagents for the synthesis of fluorine containing molecules is now published in Organic Letters. In this work, tri- and difluoromethyl thioesters could be prepared directly from readily available carboxylic acids using BT-SCF 3 and BT-SCF 2 H. DFT calculations support a concerted mechanism that avoids the generation of unstable fluoroalkylthiolate anions. Link:  https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.orglett.0c03328   Congratulations to the joint first authors Matteo and Lili as well as Arushi, Stefan and our collaboration partner Jan! Thanks also to QoD Technologies GmbH for conducting and analysing the DFT calculations.

Synpacts Article on Photo-NHC Catalysis

A Synpacts article highlighting Andreas' work on the combination of NHC Organocatalysis and light activation is now out in Synlett. Photo-NHC catalysis is a conceptually novel catalysis mode that can allow synthetically important photochemical transformations of carbonyl compounds to be conducted with hitherto unsuitable substrates at the carboxylic acid oxidation level. The Synpacts article can be found here:  https://www.thieme-connect.de/products/ejournals/abstract/10.1055/s-0040-1706472  while the original research article introducing Photo-NHC catalysis can be downloaded here: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.201914456 .

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
