With regard to the distinct research interests of the members of the “Asymmetric C-H activation” WG our work will be divided into 4 Tasks.
T1. Transition Metal-catalyzed asymmetric C-H activation.
- T1.A. C-C and C-X couplings via organometallic C-H bond.
- T1.B. Application of nitrene strategy for asymmetric C-H amination.
- T1.C. Stereoselective C-H functionalization involving hydrogen transfer.
T2: Transition metal-free approach towards asymmetric C-H functionalization
T3: Rationalization and mechanistic investigations.
T4: Application of the newly developed transformations for the synthesis of complex molecules.
