Our research is dedicated towards the development of novel catalytic methods to improve functional group tolerance, selectivities and sustainability compared to conventional non-catalytic approaches. Additionally, these newly established protocols are applied in the synthesis of bioactive compounds such as pharmaceuticals and natural products. Eventually, mechanistic elucidations allow for a deepened understanding, which inspires further innovative developments.
