Arbeitsgruppe Jr. Prof. Dr. Frederic W. Patureau

Organic Chemistry & Organometallic Catalysis

Welcome to our website. The focus of our research is transition metal catalysis, especially that which involves multiple cooperative metal centers. In general, we investigate novel strategies for pragmatic cross-coupling and other metal catalyzed reactions. We are also interested in studying the mechanism of such reactions, not only to improve our catalysts, but also to try to understand the rules and intimate properties of the atoms we handle. We are currently developing tailored methods for general (intermolecular) cross-dehydrogenative C-N & C-O bond forming reactions based on Cu & Ru catalysts, with wide applications in organic synthesis.


Rongwei Jin, who just obtained his Masters degree of chemistry at the University of Rennes, France, under the supervision of Prof. Henri Doucet and Prof. Pierre Dixneuf, joined the group in August 2014.


May 2014: We are proud to announce that our project PA 2395/2-1 has been accepted for funding by the DFG.


Frederic W. Patureau will talk about our latest results at the 2nd International Symposium on C-H activation in Rennes (France), 30th June - 3rd July 2014. Marie-Laure Louillat will present a poster.


Frederic William Patureau was born on 21st April 1982 in St. Germain en Laye, France. He studied biology at the University of Versailles (France, 2000-2002), and obtained his bachelor degree of chemistry at the University of Paris-Sud Orsay (France) in 2003. There he completed his master degree (2005) in the group of Prof. H. B. Kagan and Prof. J.-C. Fiaud (mentors: Dr. E. Schulz and Dr. M. Mellah). He then moved to the Van't Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences at the University of Amsterdam (Netherlands), where he obtained his doctoral degree in 2009, entitled sulfonamido-phosphorus ligands (mentor: Prof. J. N. H. Reek). He then joined the group of Prof. F. Glorius at the University of Münster (Germany), where he became an Alexander von Humboldt fellow (Rh C-H bond activation). In November 2011, he started his independent career as Junior Professor of Organic Chemsitry and Organometallic Catalysis, at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern.
