Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Aldehyde

His scientific interests lie mostly in Enantioselective synthesis, Catalysis, Organic chemistry, Organocatalysis and Amine gas treating. The various areas that he examines in his Enantioselective synthesis study include Iminium and Reactivity. His research integrates issues of Combinatorial chemistry, Halide and Photochemistry in his study of Catalysis.

His research in Photochemistry tackles topics such as Radical which are related to areas like Steric effects and Moiety. His study looks at the relationship between Organocatalysis and fields such as Cinchona Alkaloids, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. In his work, Vinylogy, Bifunctional and Thiourea is strongly intertwined with Stereochemistry, which is a subfield of Stereocenter.

His most cited work include:

  • Asymmetric aminocatalysis--gold rush in organic chemistry. (937 citations)
  • Targeting Structural and Stereochemical Complexity by Organocascade Catalysis: Construction of Spirocyclic Oxindoles Having Multiple Stereocenters (348 citations)
  • Cinchona-based primary amine catalysis in the asymmetric functionalization of carbonyl compounds. (300 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Catalysis, Organic chemistry, Enantioselective synthesis, Organocatalysis and Combinatorial chemistry are his primary areas of study. He has included themes like Photochemistry, Radical, Reactivity and Amine gas treating in his Catalysis study. His study in Lewis acids and bases, Primary, Cinchona Alkaloids, Michael reaction and Chemoselectivity is done as part of Organic chemistry.

His work carried out in the field of Enantioselective synthesis brings together such families of science as Iminium, Alkylation, Selectivity and Alkyl. As part of the same scientific family, Paolo Melchiorre usually focuses on Organocatalysis, concentrating on Stereochemistry and intersecting with Cascade reaction. His study on Combinatorial chemistry is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Bifunctional.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Catalysis (54.72%)
  • Organic chemistry (49.61%)
  • Enantioselective synthesis (37.80%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Radical (14.96%)
  • Catalysis (54.72%)
  • Photochemistry (14.96%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Paolo Melchiorre mainly focuses on Radical, Catalysis, Photochemistry, Enantioselective synthesis and Organocatalysis. His Radical research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Reactivity, Alkyl, Combinatorial chemistry, Redox and Nucleophile. His research in Catalysis intersects with topics in Nickel and Amine gas treating.

His Photochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Molecule and Organic synthesis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Iminium and Moiety in addition to Enantioselective synthesis. Organic chemistry covers he research in Organocatalysis.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Enhancing the potential of enantioselective organocatalysis with light (156 citations)
  • Mechanistic Studies in Photocatalysis (149 citations)
  • Mechanistic Studies in Photocatalysis (149 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Aldehyde

His primary scientific interests are in Photochemistry, Radical, Alkyl, Photocatalysis and Computer science. His work deals with themes such as Electron donor and Molecule, which intersect with Photochemistry. His Alkyl study typically links adjacent topics like Catalysis.

Many of his studies on Catalysis involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as SN2 reaction. In his papers, he integrates diverse fields, such as Context, Reactivity, Enantioselective synthesis and Organocatalysis. His study explores the link between Reactivity and topics such as Combinatorial chemistry that cross with problems in Iminium.
