T. Gianetti received the 2021 Cottrell Scholars Award

Recipients are chosen through a rigorous peer-review process of applications from top research universities, degree-granting research institutes, and primarily undergraduate institutions in the United States and Canada. Their award proposals incorporate both science education and research.

Aslam Shaikh publishes in Chemical Science

We report the reactivity between the water stable Lewis acidic trioxatriangulenium ion (TOTA+) and a series of Lewis bases such as phosphines and N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC). The nature of the Lewis acid–base interaction was analyzed via variable temperature (VT) NMR spectroscopy, single-crystal X-ray diffraction, UV-visible spectroscopy, and DFT calculations.

Jules Moutet publishes in ACS Applied Energy Material

Redox flow batteries (RFBs) represent a promising technology for grid-scale integration of renewable energy. However, cross-contamination problems, encountered with distinct catholyte and anolyte, limit the development of reliable organic RFBs. Herein, we report the first use of a helical carbocation with three oxidation states, for the development of symmetric cells.

T. Gianetti received the 2021 Thieme Chemistry Journal award

The Thieme Chemistry Journals Award is presented every year to up-and-coming researchers worldwide who are in the early stages of their independent academic career as an assistant or junior professors. The awardees are selected exclusively by the editorial board members of SYNTHESIS, SYNLETT, and SYNFACTS who constantly watch out for promising, young individuals working in chemical synthesis and catalysis or closely related areas of organic chemistry."​​
