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 in 1994, 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 (2000), the Furusato award from JSPS London (2013) and the Wolfson Research Merit Award from the Royal Society and the Bader Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry (2016). 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 a microreactor for electrochemistry including applications to modern synthesis will be discussed. The electrochemical generation of hypervalent iodine compounds using this technique will be highlighted in detail, together with examples of halogenations using such reagents. Reactions towards the formation of N–N-bonds will also be discussed.
