Project Title: Agents for metal-free C-H bond functionalization

Summary: Working on the metal-free Csp3-H bond activation under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Jones.

The aim of this project is the metal-free Csp3-H bond functionalization by using arynes. Csp3-H bond activation represents a daunting challenge as they are considered as chemically inert. Providing a metal-free direct and efficient activation of these bonds not only provides new reactivity but also enables to improve synthesis pathways thanks to the exploitation of more and cheap abundant hydrocarbons, gain of time, atom economy and reduction of waste thus cost.
