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.

16th March 2015: Welcome to Alaleh Malekafzali, from Tehran, Iran, who just joined the group as guest PhD student!


27th February 2015: Congratulations to Marie-Laure Louillat-Habermeyer, who successfully defended her PhD!


13 January 2015: We are proud to annouce that our latest experimental work is accepted in Angewandte Chemie, and is now online. Congratualtions to Marie-Laure and Rongwei for the hard work!


December 2014: Frederic Patureau gets the Thieme Chemistry Journal Award!


November 2014: We are proud to announce that our collaborative research project SFB/TRR 88 "Cooperative effects in homo and heterometallic complexes (http://3MET.de)" has been renewed. Congratulations to all contributors!





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. He obtained his Habilitation there in 2014.
