Vincent Pirenne and Ahmed Chaambi from of our team presented some of their recent work at the 8th edition of the Francophone Symposium of Total Synthesis (SFST8), organized by the « ORGA » group. The symposium took place in the heart of Bordeaux, at the « Pole Juridique et Judiciaire de l’Université de Bordeaux » (Pey-Berland square) on thursday 18 and friday 19th of may 2018.
The book on « Free-Radical Synthesis and Functionalization of Heterocycles » edited by Y. Landais has been released (ISBN 978-3-319-89521-5). The best specialists in the domain provide readers with an overview of free-radical chemistry as an environmentally benign synthetic strategy to access and functionalize heterocycles.
Our paper on the Boronic-acid Mediated Carbo-cyanation of Olefins is accepted to EJOC – congratulations to Reina, Chahinaz, Nitin and Pierre !
We have published an article in Heterocycles (DOI: 10.3987/COM-18-S(T)36) on the synthesis of the Büchi ketone. This paper is dedicated to Prof. K. Tomioka (Kyoto) on the occasion of his 70th birthday.
Nitin S. Dange, former « Marie-Curie » post-doc in the group has joined Syngene in Bangalore (India) as a Senior Research Investigator. Congratulations Nitin and good luck !
