Activation and Preparative Applications of Molecular Oxygen and Organic Peroxides in Regio- and Stereoselective Oxyfunctionalization:
The research interests in this area concern oxygen, sulfur and nitrogen transfer through oxidation processes of organic and metallorganic compounds, of which oxyfunctionalizations constitute the major effort. For this purpose, molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide as well as its derivatives (hydroperoxides, perhydrates, and dioxiranes) are used directly or are being activated chemically or photochemically (generation of singlet oxygen from molecular oxygen) to perform regio- and stereoselective oxyfunctionalizations. The purpose of this work is to understand the mechanism of oxygen-transfer processes in an effort to design more selective, efficient and convenient transformations for preparative purposes.
For the results in this research area, consult the above-mentioned publications.
