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.
