Sustainable Synthesis and Catalysis

we solve synthetic challenges in a sustainable manner
Organocatalysis

Organocatalysis

Small organic molecules can be used to catalyse innovative synthetic transformations. We can use covalent or H-bonding catalysis depending by scope and substrates

Asymmetric Synthesis

Asymmetric Synthesis

We use chiral molecules to engage organic substrates in novel stereoselective synthetic methods. We create 3-D molecular architectures in an enantioselective manner

Photocatalysis

Photocatalysis

Photocatalysis allows unique reactivity pathways, often unaccesible under polar chemistry. We use light to develop unprecedented reactivity and new molecular scaffolds
