Thomas Wirth's Biography

Thomas Wirth, Professor, Cardiff University

Thomas Wirth is professor of organic chemistry at Cardiff University. After studying chemistry in Bonn, he obtained his PhD and at the Technical University of Berlin. After a postdoctoral stay at Kyoto University, he started his independent research at the University of Basel before taking up his current position at Cardiff University in 2000. He was invited as a visiting professor to several places. Thomas Wirth was awarded the Werner-Prize from the New Swiss Chemical Society, the Furusato award from JSPS London, the Wolfson Research Merit Award from the Royal Society and the Bader Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry. In 2016 he was elected as a fellow of The Learned Society of Wales. 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 development of catalytic reactions based on stoichiometric reactions using iodine-based reagents will be discussed. Novel chiral reagents and catalysts allow the easy synthesis of versatile scaffolds as synthetic building blocks as well as applications towards total synthesis. The direct electron transfer at electrode surfaces is one of the prototypical green technologies of the future and the use of microreactors further advances and simplifies that technology. The use of a robust and flexible flow microreactor for electrochemistry will be presented for the facile generation of iodine(III) reagents. Examples of stereoselective iodine(III)-mediated electrochemical reactions are being discussed.
