Our detailed compoutational study of the titanium(III)-catalyzed coupling between ketones and nitriles has been published in Dalton Trans. The results give valuable insight into the mechanism of such reductive couplings involving low-valent titanium species and show that equilibria between neutral and cationic catalyst intermediates play an important role here.

Stefan was awarded the Steinhofer Award. The award is given to students of the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy who completed the master courses with excellent marks in a short time and who wrote an outstanding master thesis. Congratulations! Christof joined our group for his master thesis. Welcome!

The work of Leon, Jens, and Tobi was published in Angewandte Chemie. It is a new synthesis of unprotected 3-aminoindoles, 3-aminopyrroles and iminoindolines that makes use of a titanium(III)-catalyzed cyclization reaction. Find it in our list of publications.
News Item 01-2016
A fullpaper on the reductive cross-coupling between Michael-acceptors has been published in Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry. The titanium(III)-catalyzed coupling reaction has been applied to over 70 examples.
News Item 11-2015
Our most recent publications dealing with catalyzed radical additions to Michael-acceptors and the mechanism of our ketone-nitrile cross-coupling have been published in Angewandte Chemie and The Journal of the American Chemical Society, respectively. See our publication list for more details.
