Thomas Wirth mainly focuses on Combinatorial chemistry, Electrochemistry, Iodine, Hypervalent molecule and Reagent. The various areas that Thomas Wirth examines in his Combinatorial chemistry study include Reaction conditions, Catalysis, Flow chemistry, Borane and Chirality. His Catalysis study is concerned with the larger field of Organic chemistry.

He combines subjects such as Anodic oxidation, Aryl, Oxidizing agent and Reactivity with his study of Iodine. Thomas Wirth interconnects 2-Iodoxybenzoic acid and Single crystal in the investigation of issues within Hypervalent molecule. His research on Reagent also deals with topics like

  • Electrophile, Selenium and Catalytic oxidation most often made with reference to Organic synthesis,
  • Green chemistry that connect with fields like Thiourea.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Electroorganic Synthesis under Flow Conditions (61 citations)
  • Catalyst- and Supporting Electrolyte-Free Electrosynthesis of Benzothiazoles and Thiazolopyridines in Continuous Flow (46 citations)
  • Continuous‐Flow Electrochemical Generator of Hypervalent Iodine Reagents: Synthetic Applications (43 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Alkene

His primary areas of investigation include Combinatorial chemistry, Electrochemistry, Reagent, Flow chemistry and Iodine. His study in Combinatorial chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Selenoxide elimination, Organosulfur compounds, Allicin, Ajoene and Total synthesis. The concepts of his Electrochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Microreactor, Recirculating flow, Mixing and Substrate.

Reagent connects with themes related to Catalysis in his study. His Catalysis research is included under the broader classification of Organic chemistry. His Iodine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Aryl, Heteroatom and Ligand.
