Fred's, Johannes' and Franzis work was accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie.

The iron-catalysed cycloisomerisation of 1,6- and 1,7-enyneacetates towards bicyclic cyclobutanes proceeds under mild conditions as well as good yields and diastereoselectivities. As iron catalysts, the known [Fe(CO)(NO)(PPh3)2][BF4] and a novel species, [Fe(CO)(NO)(PPh3)2][BArF4], were employed. Those complexes provide selectively 6-4-membered and 5-4-membered rings, respectively. Congratulations!

Lei's recent total synthesis was published in Organic Letters.

Lei's work on the synthesis of several Picrotoxane alkaloids was published in Organic Letters. The enantioselective synthesis of Dendrobine, Mubironine and Dendroxine relies on state-of-the-art catalytic reactions, e. g. Diels-Alder reactions, Fe-catalysed lactonisation and Cu-catalysed cycloisomerisation. The LLS includes not more than 10 or 11 steps for the construction of those natural products. Well done, Lei, and congratulations!

Min received a scholarship.

Min got the Chinese Government Scholarship by the CSC (Chinese Scholarship Council). Congratulations, Min!

Samuel has finished his Ph. D.!

Congratulations, Samu! We all wish you just the best for your future!

Johannes' paper on cycloisomerisation of aryl allenyl ketones was accepted for publication in Organic Letters!

Johannes was able to show that aryl allenyl ketones smoothly rearrange in the presence of the cationic iron catalyst [Fe(CO)(NO)(PPh3)2][BF4] to yield 3-arylidene indanones. Well done and congratulations!

Felix is joining the group for his M. Sc. thesis.

Welcome, Felix! Felix is going to work on Fe catalysis. We all wish you a nice time in the lab as well as a lot of success for your chemistry.

Franzi Schumacher has finished her M. Sc. thesis!

Franzi 2 has successfully finished her undergraduate studies. Congratulations, Franzi! Before she is going to pursue her Ph. D. in our group, she will be at Merck in Darmstadt for an internship. We all wish you a lot of fun there!

Daniel, Niklas and Alexander have finished their B. Sc. theses.

The three guys have successfully finished their Bachelor studies! The group wishes you all the best for your M. Sc. studies.

Che-Hung has finished his Ph. D.!

Congratulations, Che-Hung! All of us wish you the best for your future!

Marina Fuhrer has joined the group for her Ph. D.

Marina has returned to the group for her Ph. D. Welcome back! Marinas work will be focused on Fe-catalysis as well as natural product synthesis.
