We are very happy to welcome within the CRC 1333 Colloquium Series:

 Prof. Alois Fürstner

Max Planck Institute for Coal Research

Thursday, December 08, 2022, 2:00 – 3:00 pm

Topic: tba

Prof. Alois Fürstner is a Director and Scientific Member at Max Planck Institute for Coal Research in Mülheim an der Ruhr/Germany.
His research in the Department of Organometallic Chemistry is focused on the development of organometallic reagents and catalysts, investigations into their mode of action, as well as on applications to the synthesis of structurally complex targets of biological significance. Particular attention is paid to the development and validation of catalytic methods for C-C-bond formation. Long-term projects of current interest relate to alkene and alkyne metathesis, the development and use of pi-acid catalysts (platinum, gold etc.), metal carbene chemistry in general, as well as iron catalysis.
Research Topics:

  • Alkyne Metathesis
  • Alkene Metathesis
  • π-Acid Catalysis
  • trans-Hydrierung, gem-Hydrierung und trans-Hydrometallierung
  • Iron Catalysis
  • Novel Concepts for Catalysis
  • Total Synthesis and Evaluation of Natural Products

The CRC cordially invites all who are interested to the lecture.
