Sept. 2021 - Well done to Marina (and Kang and Gary), our work on hydrido-zincates is published in Dalton Trans. This is also my 100th paper, 20 years on since I was naive UG working in the Weller group! Link to Marina's open access paper is here
August 2021 - a group social in person - such a welcome change! Hope everyone enjoyed Axe throwing and curry! I did. Photos on group page!
May 2021 - the group's work on zincatalysed arene borylation is published in Chemical Science. Congrats to Matt in particular on his first paper! It's available open access here.
March 2021 - the group's work on controlling selectivity in N-directed electrophilic C-H borylation of indoles is out online. Good work Saqib et al! It's available open access here.
Feb. 2021 - EPSRC success! Funding for a 42 months PDRA on Al/Zn catalysed C-H borylation received in collaboration with Steve Thomas, Michael Cowley and GSK. Advert up online soon!
July 2020 - Sven and Kang's review article on haloboration is published. It's available open access here
May 2020 - the group's review article on intramolecular (directed) electrophilic C-H borylation is accepted in Chem. Soc. Rev. Definitely a labour of love, thanks to the team for the massive effort on this beast. Hope the community find it useful. It's available open access here
April 2020 - the group's work on converting alkynes into triborylated alkanes using zinc-hydrides (and boranes...) is published in Organometallics. Great work, congrats. especially to Marina for all the careful experiments getting to the bottom of this! Link for the paper is here
