The mission of the Noel Research Group is
to expand the available chemical space by embracing technology to the fullest extent
Research in the Noël Research Group encompasses the development of new catalytic strategies and technologies for chemical synthesis. We strive to develop new technological tools which are of interest to the organic chemistry community and can overcome challenges in a variety of specialty applications, e.g. organic synthesis, chemical biology, material science, etc.
The aim of the Noël group is to build bridges between chemical engineering and organic synthetic chemistry. Consequently, long-standing problems in synthetic chemistry can be overcome, which includes scalability, gas-liquid reactions, photochemistry, electrochemistry and the generation and use of hazardous reagents. This allows us to effectively expand the available chemical space by bringing overlooked or avoided reagents into play.
