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.

  • Revealing the Mysterious Effect of Ortho Substituents in Aromatic C-H Activation

    Our new theoretical and practical study has been published in Chemical Science (RSC) as an Edge Article. In this investigation we aimed to explain in details the Ortho Effect in Transitional Metal Catalyzed C-H Activation. To provide a comprehensive overview. More than 250 substrates were added to the downloadable Fully Interactive Database. The developed methodology was validated in conceptual experiments, allowing reliable prediction for C-H Activation of custom substrates. For further reading, please, click here
