C-H insertions

Together with the group of Martin Weissenborn at the Leibniz Institute for Plant Biochemistry in Halle (Saale) and Junming Ho at the University of New South Wales (Sydney), we report on C-H insertion reactions of diazoalkenes with iron-heme catalysts. In this work, we have investigated both organometallic and biocatalytic C-H insertion reactions, allowing us to functionalize valuable heterocycles, including gram-scale. For all details, here is the link to the Preprint on the newly established ChemRxiv server.


We are very excited about the promotion by a Boehringer Ingelheim Exploration Grant. We sincerely thank the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation for this valuable funding of our research.
