We are delighted to welcome Dr Ivy Ghosh to our artificial metalloenzymes team, working on a project funded by The Leverhulme Trust in collaboration with Dr Anna Peacock. Ivy’s biography is on our members page. Ivy joins us from Prof. Tapan Kanti Paine’s group in Kolkata bringing her expertise in cytochrome P450 and bioinspired catalysis.
New paper: Fragmentary radical cascade of ynamides
Congratulations to Sifan and the rest of the team from SUSTech and Northern University. Our paper on titled A Radical-Initiated Fragmentary Rearrangement Cascade of Ene-Ynamides to [1,2]-Annulated Indoles via Site-Selective Cyclization has been published in Org. Lett.
New position – Dr Prakash Sekar
We’re sorry to see Prakash leave us after two eventful years, and wish him the best for his new position at Sygnature Discovery.
Some of Prakash’s work on alkynyl thioether chemistry has been published here, with more to follow in due course.
Congratulations to Peter and Prakash whose work showing the use of alkynyl thioethers with isoxazole-type nitrenoids has been published in ACS Catalysis. This work is in collaboration with Eli Lilly and Dr Jeff Richardson.
Congratulations to Pam, whose work on Gold-catalysed cycloisomerisation of ynamides to access 2,2-disubstituted tetrahydrothiophene motifs has just been accepted into Synlett
New PDRA post available
We are looking to appoint a new member of the artificial metalloenzymes team, focusing more on the structural peptide and bioinorganic aspects, working with Dr Anna Peacock’s group here in Birmingham. Details are in the advert – do get in touch with any questions.
New team member: Dr Richard Mudd
A belated welcome to Richard who joined the artificial metalloenzymes team in January. We’re delighted to have him on board, bringing his expertise in organometallic chemistry and catalysis through carbohydrate chemistry and organic cages. See here for more details.
Dr Ana Almeida
many congratulations to Ana who passed her viva today, examined by Professors Steven Cobb and John Fossey. Best wishes for your next position at Sygnature
Congratulations to Paige whose benzothiophene oxyarylation approach has been published in Organic Letters in a collaboration with the Grainger group here in UoB.
