Photoredox catalysis

In collaboration with Sascha Ott, Eszter Borbas and Jacinto Sa at the department, and Carl-Johan Wallentin (Gothenburg Univ.) we will start a joint project on photoredox catalysis in July 2020. We take advantage of recent progress in physical methods and understanding to drive and analyse the photochemical reactions. My group will focus on elucidating the photochemical reaction mechanisms and utilize proton-coupled electron transfer in the activation of chemical bonds.

A PhD position in the project is advertised now, with a deadline of June 1, 2020. Click this link for more information about the application.
