15.02.2017: Best Poster Award for our SALSA Fellow Gisa Meißner

Another award for one of our SALSA Fellows! This one goes to Gisa Meißner: She received the Best Poster Award at the 23rd winter fluorine conference 2017 in Clearwater, Florida, USA.

Her research topic and the distinguished poster discuss the C−F bond cleavage that can be regarded as a challenging reaction step which opens up new reaction pathways for the synthesis of chemical building blocks. New catalytic processes for the C-F bond functionalization of otherwise hardly accessible substrates are presented using nanoscopic aluminium chloro fluorides (ACF, AlClxF3-x x = 0.05 – 0.3). Interaction of HSiEt3 with the Lewis-acidic surface presumatly generates a silylium-like species, which activates the C-F bond to induce Friedel-Crafts type reactions. In contrast, when HGeEt3 is used as hydrogen source a dehydrofluorination occurs by C=C bond generation. A first insight on the modified ACF surfaces was obtained by MAS NMR spectroscopy and Pulse thermal analysis.

Gisa is doing her research at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin at the group of Prof. Erhard Kemnitz and the group of Prof. Thomas Braun.
