ZNG Research

Our research group was formed in 2007 by Dr. Zoltán Novák associate 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.

  • Shiny Transformations During the Summer

    Recently we released two new papers in topic of photoredox catalysis.

    Firrst, we were synthesized the highly modular bis(imino)copper(I) complexes and utilized as copper-based photocatalysts in ATRA reactions. The was paper entitled as "Design and application of diimine-based copper(I) complexes in photoredox catalysis" and published in Org. Biomol. Chem. (RSC). For further reading, please, click here.

    Second, we developed a new Ni-Ir dual photocatalytic method for Liebeskind coupling of sulfonium salts with proline to prepare 2‐benzylpyrrolidines. It has been just accepted in Eur. J. Org. Chem. (Wiley). For further reading, please, click here.

  • Simplified Synthesis of Highly Electrophile Vinyliodonium Salts

    The multifunctional aryl(trifloxyalkenyl)iodonium triflate salts are known for a while, but their preparation has never been easier. In this publication we demonstrated that, theese interesting vinyliodonium salts can be isolated using one-pot method starting from commercially available starting materials. The paper entitled as "Synthesis of Multifunctional Aryl(trifloxyalkenyl)iodonium Triflate Salts" and published in ACS Omega. For further reading, please, Click here.
