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 advantages of increased mixing of biphasic reaction mixtures in flow offers great potential compared to conventional flask techniques, especially when combined with microwave irradiation, sonication or phase transfer catalysis. In his presentation, Thomas Wirth will illustrate that enzyme- and metal-catalyzed reactions can be performed advantageously in biphasic systems.
