Our latest work exploring the combination of N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) organocatalysis and photochemistry is now out in Tetrahedron as part of the special collection entitled "System-Oriented Development of Organocatalysis" (Editor: H. Ohmiya). In this study, acyl azolium salts of the kind formed during NHC-catalyzed reactions of carboxylic acid derivatives are shown to engage in Norrish Type II elimination reactions upon light irradiation. Moreover, in special cases, Norrish-Yang cyclizations can be observed.

A review article summarising key advances in the understanding and applications of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) over the last 6 years is now out in Nature Reviews Chemistry. This review is the result of a great collaboration with the Glorius group at the WWU Münster: https://www.uni-muenster.de/Chemie.oc/glorius/ The full text of the article can be found here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41570-021-00321-1

Unveiling Glycerolipid Fragmentation by Cryogenic Infrared Spectroscopy

In our latest paper published in Organic Chemistry Frontiers, we introduce BT-SeCF 2 H as the first nucleophilic reagent for introducing the SeCF 2 H group onto organic molecules. The study of this group as a constituent moiety in pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals has been limited by the lack of methods to synthesise it with previous routes involving either indirect approaches or electrophilic difluoromethylselenylating reagents. BT-SeCF 2 H, on the other hand, allows for direct nucleophilic difluoromethylselenylation of readily available carboxylic acids and benzylic alcohols. Congratulations to the first author Matteo and to Stefan! The full text can be read here: https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2021/qo/d1qo01104a
