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.

  • Our new paper will be published in Eur. J. Org. Chem. special issue

    The groups last publication has been accepted for publication in European Journal of Organic Chemistry (Wiley). This project was entitled as "Erythrosine B catalyzed visible-light photoredox arylation-cyclization of N-alkyl-N-aryl-2-(trifluoromethyl)acrylamides to 3-(trifluoromethyl)indolin-2-one derivatives" and presented by Zsombor Gonda, Ferenc Béke, Orsolya Tischler, Milán Petró, Zoltán Novák and Balázs Tóth. In this work, the novel erythrosine B organic sensitizer dye was utilized as photocatalyst to cyclize the trifluoroacrylamides.
