ZNG Research

Our research group was formed in 2007 by Dr. Zoltán Novák Assistant Professor at Eötvös Univeristy in Budapest, Hungary. In the beginning we focused on Palladium catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, however now the scope of our research covers the topic of C-H bond activation, Copper catalyzed reactions, Iron catalyzed reactions, Cross coupling via carbon-heteroatom bond cleavage, Solid supported catalysis, Photoredox catalysis, Domino reactions, Non-atmospherical pressure reactions and Total synthesis of small natural products.

  • Successful September

    The autumn semester started, and several projects were completed successfully. 2 new publications were released in this month.

    Our formal group member, Klára Lövei and her co-workers presented a short summary in the topic of flow chemistry. This paper was entitled as "Continuous flow synthesis of heterocyclic scaffolds. Design principles of multistep systems – A review" and published in Chimica Oggi – Chemistry Today (Tekno Scienze). For further reading please, Click Here.

    Our second new paper is a study about Lewis acid accelerated palladium catalyzed C-H activation, presented by Orsolya Tischler, Szabolcs Kovács, Gábor Érsek, Péter Králl, János Daru, András Stirling, Zoltán Novák in Journal of Molecular Catalysis A: Chemical (Elsevier).

    Going beyond to our effective people and their admirable results, it is a pleasure to report, two PhD thesis defence occured on last week.
    Zsombor Gonda got Summa Cum Laude on Thursday, and Klári Aradi also finished her study with Summa Cum Laude on Friday. Congratulations!

  • New Review on Photoredox-Transition Metal Dual Catalysis

    Our new review was released in Tetrahedron Letters (Elsevier) as a Diggest Letter. This paper focused on a new methodology which started after the beginning of 21st century, and seems to be a diverse, quickly developing branch of organic chemistry. Namely, the idea of photoredox merged transition metal dual catalytic systems. This work collected all of these photoredox-TM catalyzed transformations until 2016 July. The title is "Recent Advances in Dual Transition Metal - Visible Light Photoredox Catalysis" and published by Balázs L. Tóth, Orsolya Tischler, and Zoltán Novák.
