Better together: A novel hybrid N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) palladium complex, integrating a totally inorganic and polyanionic decatungstate unit, has been synthesized following a convergent strategy. The interplay of the Pd binding domains with the inorganic scaffold is instrumental in accessing multi-turnover catalysis in C-C cross-coupling and aromatic dehalogenation reactions under...

In: Chimia, 2007, vol. 61, no. 10, p. 645-649

This paper illustrates the research on the photochemistry of reactive intermediates that was (and still is) carried out in the author's research group on three typical examples: the photochemistry of arylcarbenes, arylnitrenes, and organic radical cations.
