Congratulations to Dr. Ljiljana Pavlovic

Congratulations to Ljiljana Pavlovic who successfully defended her PhD thesis on 21.08.20, with opponents Dr. Maria Besora (URV) and Prof. Per-Ola Norrby (AstraZeneca)!

Ljiljana has now started as a Postdoc in the project CATCHME funded by the Research Council of Norway (Project leader K. Hopmann). The focus of CATCHME is on identifying molecules that can bind CO2 and promote C-CO2 bond formation, with the ultimate goal to develop asymmetric carboxylation reactions. DFT and experimental methods will be used in order to investigate the behaviour of CO2 during C-CO2 bond formations in the presence of trapping molecules.
