Andy, Will and Jamie's paper on the use of a ball mill for cross-electrophile coupling is accepted and online at Organic Letters. This manuscript describes the ability to forge C(sp3)-C(sp2) bonds using nickel catalysis, without the requirement for rigourously inert conditions and independant of the form of zinc reductant.
Jamie and Harry's paper on the ball milling synthesis of fluorophores and Photoredox catalyst system 4CzIPN is accepted for publication in JOC for the Enabling Techniques for Organic Synthesis special issue.
The group welcomes MPharm project student Shipei Fang (Selina) working the direct amidation of esters by ball milling and Visiting PhD Student Paweł Czerwinski. Paweł visits for three months from Prof. Bartłomiej Furman's lab at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland.
Our studies on the unique reactivity afforded by ball milling manganese metal is now online at ChemRxiv. This study explores and demonstrates that ball milling of manganese is essential to enable the reductive dimerisation of alkenes.

Harry, Jamie and Tom's review on the generation and use of ketenes under continuous flow conditions is online at Tetrahedron as part of the 'Advances in Continuous Flow Chemistry' special issue. It was great working again with Steve Ley on this one.
Two online for Andy today! Andy, Will and Jamies paper on the use of a ball mill for cross-electrophile coupling is now online at ChemRxiv. This manuscript describes the ability to forge C(sp3)-C(sp2) bonds using nickel catalysis, without the requirement for rigourously inert conditions and independant of the form of zinc reductant.
We're proud to have Andy Jones representing the group today with a research talk at the RSC Fluorine Interest Group's 19th Annual Meeting (online this year!). Andy will talk about our collaborative project with Dr Alison Stuart at University of Leicester
Our collaborative work on continuous flow Z-selective metathesis leb by Marc Mauduit is uploaded to ChemRxiv. This work features catalyst and reactor design (tube in tube reactors and serail CSTR's) to deliver a platform technique for the continuous synthesis of several commerically valuable Z products.
