In our lab we develop new redox transformations fueled by visible light or directly at electrodes. These readily available methods are combined with abundant transition metal catalysis thus allowing the synthesis of complex molecules in a mild and straightforward fashion.
We start off the year with great news: the perspective together with the Feringa lab was accepted in Tetrahedron. We discuss the advantages of Tetrathiafulvalenes (TTF) and Thianthrenes (TT) in synthesis and materials application. Next, in a collaboration with the Minnaard group we developed a metal-free C3-selective electrochemical oxidation of glycosides. This work was just…
We, the Lerch and Beil Labs, closed the year with an amazing, very international christmas party. The potluck dinner was spread all over the world, from China to Argentina and back to The Netherlands. Traditional German Feuerzangenbowle created a cozy atmosphere as well.
In November two students started in the group: Anne is an internship MSc student from the University of Tübingen (Germany) and will spent a few weeks with us. Zao is a new PhD student in the group. He studied at University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing, China) and was successful to acquire a fellowship…
