Projects for students

We are currently recruiting applicants for Bc, Mgr, and PhD projects in the following areas:

1. Skeletal Editing as a Route to Chiral N- and N,N-Aromatics (SERENA)


2. Synthesis of Chiral Cyclopentadienes and Their Complexes (CHICPLEX)


3. New Isostere for ortho-Substituted Benzenes (NIOB)


4. Enantioselective Synthesis of Emetine Class Alkaloids (ESECA)



" ...This new power, hitherto  unknown  is  common both organic and inorganic nature ... I shall ...call it catalytic power."

 Berzelius Edin. New. Phil. Jrnl. XXI, 223.



Today catalysis, especially the one using transition metal compounds, arms chemists with a unique tool that allows to bring about complex transformations of molecules under mild reaction conditions.  These fascinating opportunities provide major impetus for our interests in exploratory research in catalysis and its application in organic synthesis.
