What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Alkene

Frank Glorius mostly deals with Catalysis, Organic chemistry, Combinatorial chemistry, Carbene and Medicinal chemistry. His research in Catalysis intersects with topics in Stereochemistry and Intermolecular force. His work is connected to Enantioselective synthesis, Stetter reaction, Palladium, Regioselectivity and Aryl, as a part of Organic chemistry.

In his research, Visible spectrum is intimately related to Transition metal, which falls under the overarching field of Combinatorial chemistry. His research in Carbene focuses on subjects like Ligand, which are connected to Steric effects. His studies in Medicinal chemistry integrate themes in fields like Bond formation and Double bond.

His most cited work include:

  • An overview of N-heterocyclic carbenes (1867 citations)
  • Towards mild metal-catalyzed C–H bond activation (1804 citations)
  • C-H bond activation enables the rapid construction and late-stage diversification of functional molecules (1372 citations)
