Organic Synthesis and Photocatalysis

We are a young organic chemistry research group focused on the development of new synthetic tools to access highly functionalized heterocyclic molecules. The exploration of new retrosynthetic disconnections and the construction of yet underrepresented fluorinated scaffolds will allow us to address current challenges in organic synthesis that are of utmost importance for research programs in pharmaceutical chemistry, crop and materials science. In addition, we aim to further develop photocatalytic methods to convert organic feedstocks and biomass-derived chemicals into valuable synthetic intermediates. To this end, we want to minimize the use of rare earth metals as well as the application and development of organic dyes.
