Assist. Prof. Michael Schnürch

🇦🇹 Technische Universität Wien

🎓 Resume
Michael Schnürch carried out PhD research in the field of heterocyclic and cross-coupling chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Peter Stanetty. During postdoctoral studies at the Columbia University, NY in the group of Prof. Dalibor Sames as Erwin Schrödinger fellow of the Austrian Science Fund, he investigated decarbonylative coupling reactions. After the start of his independent career, he established a research program on C-H activation chemistry and cross-dehydrogenative coupling reactions, supported by several research grants (financed by FWF, FFG, The City of Vienna, and TU Wien).

🔍 Research Interest

His research interests are located in the field of synthesis of heterocyclic compounds for:

  • the manipulation of cell differentiation and GABAA receptors;
  • C-H activation of sp3 centers;
  • the substitution of gaseous reagents for solid alternatives;
  • green chemistry;
  • flow chemistry.

⚙️ Projects in CHAIR
#5 Development of directing group (DG) selective functionalization of advanced intermediates or active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) designed C-H functionalization

#6 Sustainable and safe C-H activation for large-scale production
