Prof. Bert Maes group

Research in the Prof. Maes group is focused on homogeneous transition metal catalysis and heterocyclic chemistry. There are a few major research lines:

  • Direct Functionalization via Transition Metal-Catalyzed C-H Bond Activation
  • Study of Fundamental Steps of Transition metal-Catalyzed Cross-coupling Reactions
  • Transition Metal-catalyzed Reactions involving Isocyanides
  • Recovery and Reuse of Noble Transition Metals
  • Chemicals from Renewable Feedstock
