Project description

This project proposes the development of new domino reactions and their valorization. Initially, the focus will be on the in situ generation of thiols as starting materials for radical thiol-ene 'click' chemistry. Other domino approaches will be investigated and the synthesized products will be applied within the framework of current research projects.
