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.

  • News from October and November

    We are happy to announce that, we have new members in our research group!

    Dr. Gellért Sipos joined us as a PostDoc. He arrived home from Group of Reto Dorta, The University of Western Australia (UWA).

    Milán Petró, Levente Répassy and András Szemes started to work in our laboratories on their BSc. thesis. 


    Our new publication on C-H activation of aryl urea derivatives has been accepted in Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis (Wiley)! It will be online soon in "Early View" section!


    Anna Székely passed her PhD final examination. Congratulations!

    The Conference of Scientific Students’ Associations (TDK) in Eötvös University was organized on last Saturday (26.11.2016). Péter Elekes, Gergő Sályi, János T. Csenki and Márton Zwillinger attended on this event, and defended their dissertation. Congratulations to them! Considering the summarized points of thesis and the presentation Gergő Sályi received the Árpád Gerecs Price, János T. Csenki got 2nd place and Zwillinger Márton achieved the 1st place! Congratulations! Follow this link for results chart (hungrarian).

    The next challenge will come at the XXXIII. National Conference of Scientific Students’ Associations (OTDK) in Faculty Of Materials Science And Engineering, University Of Miskolc, Miskolc, Hungary at 29-31.03.2017.

  • 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). For further reading please, Click Here.

    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!
