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 justContinue reading “Two new publications accepted”
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 fellowshipContinue reading “Welcome two students”
Sustainability is not only a goal in out lab, we strive to implement it also in the way we do research. We are happy to annouce the awarding for the LEAF Bronze level. Congratulations to all members!
In October Prof. Siegfried Waldvogel, a world-leading expert in electroorganic chemistry, visited us at the RUG. The day was full of discussions and a handful of students were able to attend a meet-and-greet with Prof. Waldvogel and get to know him better in an extended lunch.
In September, the Beil Lab went to the national Dutch chemistry conference CHAINS, organized by NWO, the Dutch science foundation. It was two days of amazing chemistry spanning from Molecules of Life all the way to Fundamentals and Methods. Afterwards, Sebastian attended the Electrochemistry in Berlin, hosted by the German Chemical Society. The annual meetingContinue reading “Conference Season Fall 2022”
This month Martijn started as a Master student and will perform his research project on exciting copper photoredox catalysis. We wish him a lot of success with the project!
Have you ever wondered how much design and engineering went into coatings. We are going to develop new coating materials using bio-based aggregates. Check out the link for more details: vacancy or directly at the RUG page
Recently the Faculty of Science and Engineering @RUG initiated its sustainability program. Sebastian joined the streering group of FSE goes green. Stay tuned what we can do a individuals to make labs greener.
This month Jonas Hoffmann started as a postdoctoral research fellow in the group. Previously Jonas was working in Nagoya at the prestigious ITbM in the group of Shigehiro Yamaguchi. His research in Groningen is funded by an FSE Research Grant and he will investigate redox modulations with amino acids. Welcome and success Jonas!
