Just accepted! New article about making more efficient enatioselective organocatalytic reactions

Juanvi has worked hard in this project and now the first results have just come out. The central idea is to generate in situ, the carbonyl compound, via oxidation of an alcohol, which is involved in a subsequent asymmetric organocatalytic … Continue reading

One of our recent works has been highlighted in Synfacts

Our Asymmetric Organocatalysis (H-OCA) research group has developed a new enantioselective process for carrying out the Henry reaction. This reaction produces β-nitro alcohols, a group of compounds of highest interest, as they are frequently found in the structure of certain … Continue reading
