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.

  • 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.

  • Personal Account about Mild C-H Activation

    Our first Personal Account was published in The Chemical Record (Wiley) this August. In this comprehensive work we attempted to collect the developments and transformations which avoid the utilization of harsh reaction conditions (high temperature, strong acids and bases and numerous further additives) in the field of palladium catalyzed, ortho-directed C-H activation of aniline derivatives from the first attempts to up-to-date results, including the results of our research laboratory. The title of this review is "Mild Palladium Catalyzed ortho C-H Bond Functionalizations of Aniline Derivatives". For further reading please, Click Here.
