Increasing the Atom Economy of Cross-Coupling Reactions - Immobilised Phosphine Ligands for Gold(I) Mediated Cross-Coupling

Jan-Ole Springer

Otto-Diels-Institut für Organische Chemie, University of Kiel

Jan-Ole was born in Eckernförde. After graduating from school he was drafted for mandatory military service. In 2008, he started studying chemistry at the Georg-August-University of Göttingen. During his bachelor thesis he worked on functionalisation of peptides with nucleobases via dynamic chemistry and obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in 2012. For his Master's degree, he went to the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, where he investigated metalation reactions of azobenzenes. Currently he is working on Gold(I) cross coupling reactions for semiconducting polymers and recycling of the gold sideproducts. His PhD is funded by a fellowship from the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU).


Cross-coupling reactions are widely used in research and as well in the commercial production worldwide for the synthesis of the most sophisticated and complex molecules. However, the major drawback of cross-coupling reactions... [ view full abstract ]
