Direct Oxidative Coupling
Dr. Andrey P. Antonchick
Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology and
Technical University of Dortmund (Germany)
Friday 30th January, 2015. ICIQ Auditorium, 12 p.m.
Professional Career
He was born in 1976 in Bobruisk, USSR. He studied chemistry at Belarusian
State University (Minsk, Belarus) and received a PhD from the Institute of
Bioorganic Chemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (Minsk)
and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology (Jena, Germany) under the
guidance of Prof. V.A. Khripach and PD Dr. B. Schneider. After a postdoctoral
appointment with Prof. M. Rueping at Frankfurt University (Germany), he
joined the group of Prof. H. Waldmann. In June, 2010 he was appointed group
leader at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology.
Research Interests
His research interests encompass the development of new reaction methodologies, including the
development of C-H bond functionalization methods, application of hypervalent iodine reagents in
organic synthesis, enantioselective catalysis, synthesis of bioactive compounds and their evaluation.
