Welcome to the Malapit Group
organic synthesis | organometallic chemistry | electrochemistry | catalysis
The Malapit lab is Northwestern's newest synthetic chemistry research group.
We utilize a multidisciplinary approach using the concepts of organic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, and electrochemistry towards the (a) discovery of new reactions and understanding their mechanisms, (b) development of sustainable catalytic transformations, and (c) design of new molecules for medicine, agriculture, and energy storage.
Mediated electrochemical selective C–H oxidation
Herein we present a rationally designed platform that provides a step toward this challenge using N-ammonium ylides as electrochemically driven oxidants for site-specific, chemoselective C(sp3)–H oxidation.
