Palladium(0)-catalyzed C(sp3)-H activation: from method development to natural product synthesis
Since 2015 he is a full Professor of chemistry at the University of Basel, Switzerland.
His research interests are development of new synthetic methods: palladium-catalyzed activation of unactivated C-H bonds (since 2003), remote functionalization via migratory cross-coupling (since 2010), Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling, asymmetric catalysis. Application to the synthesis of natural products and active pharmaceutical ingredients.
