Beil Lab

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.

Bio-based hybrid materials

Recently Mahdi started as a new PhD student and is going to work on bio-based materials for new coating applications. Within the ARC CBBC and together with Tobias Schnitzer we will investigate materials for our industrial partners from BASF and AkzoNobel.

Electrosynthesis is getting attention

We are really happy that our recent publication in ACS Catalysis on the selective oxidation of glycosides was now highlighted in Some Items of Interest to Process R&D Chemists and Engineers in Organic Process Research & Development.

Two new publications accepted

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…
