Novel Pincer complexes for catalysis

Novel Pincer complexes for catalysis

Internship Description

The student will work on the design and synthesis of 2-amino-pyridine based pincer ligands (3-10 steps) and the preparation of their corresponding transition metal complexes. Students will trained on standard organic synthesis knowledge and Schlenk skills.
