Ali and Mickaël joined forces with a number of other groups to investigate proposed Pd-free cross coupling chemistry and to help understand what is really going on. The team's findings are available to read as a preprint here.

Congratulations to Ali on being awarded the Thieme Chemistry Journals Award for 2021!

The Thieme Chemistry Journals Award, established in 1999 with the aim to encourage young scientists, is granted to prospective chemists, who have been recognized as high-potential researchers in the field of synthetic organic chemistry by the editorial board members of SYNTHESIS, SYNLETT and SYNFACTS

The group celebrated the holidays in a different way this year. We marked the end of this (strange) year with a quiz and some online games.
