Congratulations to Kevin and Joanne whose work has been accepted for publication in ACS Catalysis. This paper covers their work on an iron-catalysed Heck-type reaction, coupling alkyl bromides with a range of vinyl arenes.
The paper can be viewed here.
A massive congratulations to Jamie and Jingying whose exciting work has been published in Nature Chemistry. The work describes a general and practical activation method for first row transition metals without the need for air and moisture sensitive techniques. The paper can be accessed here.
Congraulations to Kevin for giving a talk at the XII JNOST conference in Lucknow, India. He attended as part of the RSC delegation.
Also, congratulations to Jamie for presenting a poster at the Earth Abundant Metal Catalysis Conference at the Catalysis Hub in Oxfordshire.
Big congratulations to Alex for getting his work on aluminium-catalysed hydroboration published in Angewandte last month. It’s a really nice paper and our first publication using main group catalysis!
We’d also like to say farewell to three of our recently departed PhD students. Amy, Kevin and Jim were great colleagues and we wish them all the best in the future.
Whilst in the group, they did some great work and will all have multiple publications from their PhD’s. You can check out some of their work on the publications page.
A belated welcome to Joanne who is doing a PhD in our group after moving to us from the University of Dundee.
We’d also like to welcome our 3 undergraduate students: John, Doug and Simon. They’ve been with us for a couple of months now and have made a big impact!
Congratulations to Jim whose work on iron-catalysed activator-free vinylarene hydroboration has been recently published in ACS Catalysis.
The publication can be accessed here.
A warm welcome to Nate Ang, who has joined the group as an MSci student. Nate did his undergraduate at Nanyang Technical University in Singapore before coming to Edinburgh.
We are very happy to welcome Jingying back to the group. After completing her MSci with us, she decided to come back and join us as a fully fledged PhD student!
Congratulations to Amy whose work on amine activation methods for iron-catalysed hydrofunctionalisation has been published by Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis.
