On the 7th of November, Quentin defended his PhD thesis entitled “”Synthesis of new amino-containing p-conjugated polymers via dimerization of acyclic aminoarylcarbenes” in front of a jury composed of Dr. S. Reynaud (U. Pau), Dr. D. Martin (U. Grenoble Alpes) and Dr. D. Gigmes (U. Aix-Marseille). Congratulations Quentin and good luck for the future.
Mr. Damien Magis from ENSIACET (Toulouse) joins our group as a PhD student. Welcome Damien !
Dr. Nivesh Kumar from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel) and the research group of Prof. A. Masarwa, has joined our group as a postdoctoral fellow. Welcome Nivesh !
Mr. Shuai LIU from AnHui University (China) and the research group of Prof. Zhong-Quan Liu has joined our group for a PhD. Welcome Shuai !!
Our work on Boronic-acid Mediated Carbo-cyanation of Olefins and Vinylation of Alkyl Iodides (Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2018, 4058-4063) is highlighted in Organic Chemistry Portal.
Our group participated in the last Chirality2019 congress held in Bordeaux from July 14 to 17 in Bordeaux. Claire and Iman presented their recent results on this occasion
Govind Pawar is leaving the team after two years as a IDEX post-doctoral fellow to join Syngene in India. Thank you Govind and good luck !
Our paper on “Vicinal difunctionalization of alkenes by four-component radical cascade reaction of xanthogenates, alkenes, CO, and sulfonyl oxime ethers” with the group of Prof. I. Ryu and Prof. T. Fukuyama from University of Osaka Prefecture has been accepted in Beilstein J. Org. Chem.
Our article in Helvetica Chimica Acta on “Aryl-mediated Alkenylation of Alkyl halides” has just been accepted. This paper is dedicated to Prof. Philippe Renaud (University of Bern, Switzerland) on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Our team and Philippe’s team have collaborated for several years on projects around radical chemistry, in particular on carbo-azidation of chiral allylsilanes and radical processes involving silaboranes.
Congratulations to Ahmed and Gülbin.
