Asymmetric Catalysis in Transfer of Carbenes and Nitrenes, and in Nucleophilic Substitutions

The objective of the research consists in the conversion of achiral or racemic molecules into chiral products by means of appropriate catalysts.

The main domains of interest are:

Transition metal-catalysed decomposition of diazo compounds

Generation and enantioselective transfer of metal carbenoids from phenyliodonium ylides

Enantioselective transfer of nitrenes

Desymmetrisation of aziridines with chiral nucleophiles and bases

Enantioselective nucleophilic substitution at prochiral, sp3-hybridized carbon
