Highly cited and Top 25 hottest articles :-)

Our paper “Solvent-controlled selective Synthesis of a trans-configured Benzimidazoline-2-ylidene Palladium(II) Complex and Investigations of its Heck-type catalytic activity” (J. Organomet. Chem. 2005, 690, 3854-3860) has been recognised as a ‘top 50’ most cited article from Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, as published 2005-2008.

In addition, Basu’s and Han Yuan’s papers below ranked 3rd (January-March 08) and 2nd (July-September 2007) of the top 25 hottest articles from the Journal of Organometallic Chemistry.

  1. Hey guys!
    Your doing a very good job outside of Germany. So, congratulations to Han Yuan and Vinh from Munich. Would be nice to hear some responses!
    Greetings, Thomas

  2. Thanks Thomas, we will keep it up. Han Yuan will graduate soon…she’s writing up her thesis now. I’m sure you are doing well too.

  3. Hai Vinh,
    nice to see your carbene papers.. We still have a blue colored box in our glove box at 2.17, labeled Vinh…How z singapore..


  4. Hello Abbas,
    I think you are Loli right? I’m doing fine in Singapore, thanks for asking. And I hope you are doing fine as well. Where are you now?
    You mean the blue box in 2.17 still contains my precious compounds? hehe

  5. Hi Vinh,
    nice to see, that you’ve finally found your way to the real chemistry and forgot about the stinky stuff…..

  6. Hi Holli,
    it seems the “real chemistry” is easier to do. At least we can obtain nice crystal sructures more easily. Or maybe the crystallization kit that I received as a dissertation gift was helpful 😉
