Small organic molecules can be used to activate substrates and enable novel synthetic transformations. We aim at devising new transformations and activations, designing more active catalytic systems, and modes of recycling and recovering catalysts.
Exploiting light to enable a complementary reactivity to polar chemistry as well as to selectively excite unreactive substrates and intermediates. With this toolkit in hands, we investigate new systems and reactivities.
Building on our previous experience in pharma and the knowledge of mechanisms in private companies, we support industry and applied research with the flexibility and dynamic approach provided by academia.
