Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Alkene

Paul Knochel mainly focuses on Organic chemistry, Reagent, Catalysis, Aryl and Zinc. His work in Organic chemistry addresses subjects such as Medicinal chemistry, which are connected to disciplines such as Stereochemistry. His Reagent course of study focuses on Combinatorial chemistry and Surface modification.

His studies in Catalysis integrate themes in fields like Halide and Nickel. Paul Knochel interconnects Amination, Pyridine, Negishi coupling and Nitrile in the investigation of issues within Aryl. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Zinc, focusing on Polymer chemistry and, on occasion, Alkyl, Coupling and Addition reaction.

His most cited work include:

  • Comprehensive organic synthesis (1156 citations)
  • Preparation and reactions of polyfunctional organozinc reagents in organic synthesis (722 citations)
  • A liCl-mediated Br/Mg exchange reaction for the preparation of functionalized aryl- and heteroarylmagnesium compounds from organic bromides (612 citations)

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

Paul Knochel mostly deals with Organic chemistry, Catalysis, Reagent, Medicinal chemistry and Aryl. Organic chemistry is represented through his Zinc, Electrophile, Magnesium, Enantioselective synthesis and Allylic rearrangement research. His Catalysis study deals with Coupling intersecting with Computational chemistry.

Paul Knochel works mostly in the field of Reagent, limiting it down to topics relating to Combinatorial chemistry and, in certain cases, Surface modification, as a part of the same area of interest. His Medicinal chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Regioselectivity and Alkyl. He has included themes like Halide and Coupling reaction in his Aryl study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Organic chemistry (48.20%)
  • Catalysis (25.49%)
  • Reagent (20.40%)

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

  • Organic chemistry (48.20%)
  • Catalysis (25.49%)
  • Medicinal chemistry (14.18%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Organic chemistry, Catalysis, Medicinal chemistry, Combinatorial chemistry and Polymer chemistry. His study in Organic chemistry focuses on Enantioselective synthesis, Alkylation and Borylation. His Catalysis research incorporates themes from Cobalt, Aryl, Coupling and Nickel.

Paul Knochel regularly ties together related areas like Halide in his Aryl studies. His research integrates issues of Electrophile and Alkyl in his study of Medicinal chemistry. His Combinatorial chemistry study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Reagent.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Oriented Films of Conjugated 2D Covalent Organic Frameworks as Photocathodes for Water Splitting. (120 citations)
  • Synthesis of Bicyclo[1.1.1]pentane Bioisosteres of Internal Alkynes and para-Disubstituted Benzenes from [1.1.1]Propellane. (55 citations)
  • Cobalt-Catalyzed Electrophilic Amination of Aryl- and Heteroarylzinc Pivalates with N-Hydroxylamine Benzoates. (29 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Alkene

His primary scientific interests are in Organic chemistry, Catalysis, Medicinal chemistry, Combinatorial chemistry and Aryl. Paul Knochel is interested in Enantioselective synthesis, which is a field of Organic chemistry. His Catalysis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cobalt, Polymer chemistry and Nickel.

While the research belongs to areas of Medicinal chemistry, Paul Knochel spends his time largely on the problem of Electrophile, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Regioselectivity, Metalation, Magnesium, Allylic rearrangement and Flow chemistry. His studies deal with areas such as Reagent, Zinc, Halide and Acylation as well as Aryl. In his research on the topic of Reagent, Stereoselectivity and Walden inversion is strongly related with Alkyl.
