Evan and Hoimin’s discovery of Bronsted acid catalyzed triplet sensitization is online at Chem Sci. This third chapter in our triplet activation story is again in collaboration with the Baik group at KAIST.
The Yoon lab is pleased to welcome its newest graduate student, Matthew Rossler!
BJ and Kimberly have developed a method for alkoxylation of benzylic C–H bonds with a range of alcohol nucleophiles, featuring very high site-selectivity and functional group compatibility. The method, first reported on ChemRxiv, has now …
Jian, Wes, Hoimin, Kaz, and Jesse have identified an unusual mechanism of enantioselective photoactivation in a JACS full paper. This study required synthetic and kinetic studies from our group, transient absorption spectroscopy in Jerry Meyer‘s …
Enantioselective [2+2] Cinnamate Photocycloadditions
Mary Beth and BJ’s study of asymmetric cinnamate ester photocycloadditions appears in JACS. Part of a great collaboration with the Baik group at KAIST!
Photocatalytic Pyrrolidine Synthesis
We are pleased to contribute Adrian and Evan’s article on a Photocatalytic Strategy for Pyrrolidine Synthesis to the Asian JOC Special Issue on Heterocyclic Chemistry.
Counteranion Effects in Photoredox Catalysis
Elliot, Steven, and Wes have published a full paper in JACS analyzing the origins of a surprising counteranion effect in photocatalytic radical anion Diels–Alder cycloadditions. A paper six years in the making!
