To ensure a good start in the new year, Lena’s paper on the synthesis of beta-amino acid derivatives is now available in Chemistry – A European Journal. Well done Lena and thank you to Phil for his crystallography work! Read about it via the link on our publications page.
Marku’s work on sylil carbamates as latent pronucleophiles is now published in Organic Letters. Great work Markus, Lorenz and Lena! Read all about it via the link on our publications page
The group celebrated the winter holidays together with a very Thuringian dinner and a local brewery tour. Stand by for the photos on our group photos page!
Lucas Gregor stays in the group for his PhD work. Good luck with your research Lucas!
Our new 300 MHz NMR instrument with a broadband probe and stopped flow equipment is now installed and fully operational. Special thanks goes to Dr. Nils Schlörer and his team for their help in setting up the instrument and integrating it into FSU Jena NMR platfor.
The instrument is a part of the project “Niederfeld-NMR-Plattform für die schnelle Erfassung von NMR-Daten, NMR Screening, und Überwachung schneller chemischer Reaktionen und biomolekularer Interaktionen” supported by the state of Thüringia through Thüringia Aufbaubank, and co-financed by funds from the European Union within the framework of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) / Europäischen Fonds für regionale Entwicklung (EFRE).
Congratulations to Lucas Gregor for defended his thesis and successful finished his MSc studies. We are very happy that Lucas will be continuing as a researches in our group.
Melissa Victoria Fernandes da Silva from Brazil and Caesar Ghiabi from Iran join us for three months for their IAESTE internships. Welcome to Jena!
A paper on biosynthetic incorporation of fluorinated amino acids into gramicidin S, stemming from a great collaboration with the groups of Hajo Kries and Bettina Keller, is now published in RSC Chemical Biology. Read more about it on our publications page.
Congrats to Vladimir on finishing his MSc studies. He continues in Jena as a PhD student in Schubert group (and as a dear guest in our group!).
The results of a fantastic multidisciplinary collaborative project coordinated by Stallforth and Wariner groups is now published in Science. It’s a really cool story and we are happy to have contributed! Link to the paper is available at our publications page.
We continue the work on latent nucleophiles in Lewis base catalysis. This time it is on enantioselective allylation of silyl enol ethers. Read more about this work at our publications page.
The results of a collaborative project with the Beemelmanns group on synthesis of 3-methylene-5-hydroxy esters via Barbier allylation is now published in Eur. J. Org. Chem. Read more about this work at our publications page.
Lucas joins the group as a MSc thesis student after working with us as an intern. He will be working on a new exciting project. Good luck with your science Lucas!
Fantastic collaborations lead to fantastic discoveries. Congratulations to the Helleday group, the entire collaborative team behind this work, and especially to Maurice and Carolos who led the study. We are very happy to have contributed to this paper. Read more about it on our publications page.
After a lengthy renovation, we are finally back to our labs in IOMC and we are excited to continue our synthetic work!
Michael has completed his MSc thesis with us and defends his thesis on November 24th. Good luck with the defense Michael! Expectations are high…
Milica has been an intern with us since March this year. She liked it so much that she decided to stay for her PhD. Good luck with your research Milica!
Juliane has sucessfully finished her MSc studies in our group and defended her thesis. Her next stop: PhD position in the Brendel group at FSU Jena. All the best for your future research Juliane!
We were happy to contribute to the Tetrahedron special issue on System-Oriented Development of Organocatalysis. Congrats to Hiro Ohmiya for doing a great job of editing this special issue and congrats to Fritz, Milica and Max for doing a great job in the lab and in presenting their results.
