Congratulations to Martin on publishing his first paper. The paper was published online in Synthesis and describes the large-scale synthesis of a chiral sulfide, isothiocineole, and its application in asymmetric epoxidations and aziridinations on multi-gram scale. The work is a collaboration with the Aggarwal group in the University of Bristol. Martin’s co-authors are Dr Johnathan Matlock, Dr Ona Illa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), Eoghan and Prof Varinder Aggarwal.
Currently the paper can be read online (with a subscription) but an author’s copy will be posted on the group website soon, and a copy will be deposited in the UCD repository once an embargo period has passed.
