A paper by Jesús Campos on catalytic C-B coupling using a bora-Negishi methodology has been designated a ‘hot paper’ by the editors of Angewandte Chemie.


This paper is one of four in diverse areas of chemistry which have been accepted for publication in September/October by J. Am. Chem. Soc. and Angewandte Chemie. These also include work by Zhenbo Mo on reversible small molecule capture/activation by frustrated Lewis pairs, by Arnab Rit on highly reactive germanium cations (see figure), and a collaborative study with the group of Jose Goicoechea on E-H activation at phosphorus.


Prof Aldridge to be on the editorial board of the new high-profile journal Chem to be published in 2016 onwards by Cell Press.


New DPhil and Part 2 students join the Aldridge group in October 2015-16: Part 2 students Nicola Oldroyd, Tom Hood, Ailsa Keyser and Rob Morris and DPhil candidate Rob Mangan have joined the group. Two further DPhil students will join later in the year. Dr Yanhui Guo from Fudan University has also joined us as a visiting research fellow.
