Azamat will present his research entitled "Nickel phosphinite pincer complexes as catalysts for deoxygenative hydroboration of amides to amines" at the the ACS Spring 2023 meeting on March 26-30, 2023 in Indianapolis (USA)
Welcome Tolganay and Ainur!
Tolganay and Ainur joined our group in Fall 2022 as PhD students of our brand new NU PhD Program in Chemistry.
Prof. Andrey Y. Khalimon has been appointed as a Guest Editor of a special issue "Metal-Catalyzed Hydrogenation and Hydroelementation Reactions" in the section "Organometallic Chemistry" of Inorganics (MDPI).
Inorganics (ISSN 2304-6740; Q2, IF 3.149, citescore 5.1) is an international peer-reviewed open access journal that covers all aspects of inorganic chemistry research, including synthesis, characterization and applications of inorganic compounds, structure and bonding in inorganics, mechanisms of inorganic reactions, organometallic compound, inorganic cluster chemistry, coordination chemistry, bio-inorganic chemistry, inorganic solid-state chemistry, and inorganic materials.
The research work of Kristina and Ainur on hydroboration of isocyanates has been accepted for publication as a full paper in Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry (RSC, Q1, IF 3.89; link to the article). Well done!!!
Congratulations to Valeriya on completion of her Chemistry BSc degree!
Valeriya will shortly move to Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST, Japan) for 5 months research internship in the group of Prof. Julia Khusnutdinova. Well done Valeriya!!!
