Prof. Hashmi from the Ruprecht-Karls-University of Heidelberg will talk within the colloquium series of the CRC 1333.

Monday , 12. October 2020, 2:00 – 3:00 pm

Topic: Gold Catalysis – Ligands, Intermediates, Light

via WebEx video conference

Meeting-Kennnummer (Zugriffscode): 121 520 1436
Meeting-Passwort: vNgmMH386mP


The scientific presentation will include efforts in the field of catalyst development, methodology development and the influence of light in gold catalysis.
This will include mechanistic experiments and computational studies.

Stephen Hashmi is Professor of  Organic Chemistry at the Ruprecht-Karls-University of Heidelberg. His research presently concentrates on the following focus areas:

  • Transition metal catalysis, especially gold-catalyzed C-C- and C-heteroatom-bond formation, but also Palladium-, Platinum- Copper-, Silver-, Rhodium-, Iridium- and Ruthenium-catalyzed reactions (methodologies, mechanisms and enantioselective catalysis)
  • Bioorganometallic chemistry, especially interactions of helical-chiral organometallic compounds with DNA, organometallic compounds as prodrugs, conjugates of organometallic compounds and natural products
  • Organometallic chemistry, especially enantiopure metallacycloalkanes (Ni, Pd, Pt), chiral coordination polymers, cyclometallations and olefin insertions

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