Thomas Wirth's Biography



Thomas Wirth, Professor, Cardiff University

Thomas Wirth is professor of organic chemistry at Cardiff University. After studying chemistry in Bonn and at the Technical University of Berlin, he obtained his PhD in 1992 with Professor S.Blechert. After a postdoctoral stay with Professor K. Fuji at Kyoto University as JSPS fellow, he started his independent research at the University of Basel (Switzerland). In the group of Professor B. Giese he obtained his habilitation on stereoselective oxidation reactions supported by various scholarships before taking up his current position at Cardiff University in 2000. He was invited as a visiting professor to a number of places including the University of Toronto/Canada (1999), various universities in Japan including Chuo University (2000), Osaka University (2004), Osaka Prefecture University (2008) and Kyoto University (2012, with a JSPS short term fellowship). He was awarded the Werner-Prize from the New Swiss Chemical Society in 2000 and the JSPS London Furusato award in 2013. His main interests of research concern stereoselective electrophilic reactions, oxidative transformations with hypervalent iodine reagents including mechanistic investigations and organic synthesis performed in microreactors.

The introduction of general platforms to perform reactions under continuous flow rather than in batch mode has led to improvements regarding safety and sustainability. A reduction in processing time and potential for manufacturing scale-out will be demonstrated using various examples.
