Mechanistic Studies

We are highly interested in investigating the mechanism of organic reactions. We study reactions developed in our own group, but also others and we are always interested in collaborations with other research groups. We use a variety of techniques, including synthetic, spectroscopic and kinetic studies (e.g., see J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2012, 134, 5317). To obtain kinetic data, we use NMR spectroscopy or reaction calorimetry. We like to evaluate the data by Donna Blackmond’s method of Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis (e.g., see J. Org. Chem. 2014, 79, 12033). In collaboration with other scientists, we combine experimental with theoretical mechanistic studies (e.g., see Chem. Eur. J. 2015).
