The Soós Organocatalysis
Research Group

Welcome

GET TO KNOW OUR RESEARCH

The focus of our research is the development of advanced organochemical synthetic methodologies, exemplified in organocatalysis, frustrated Lewis pair chemistry, and strained heterocycle chemistry. These are also applied in the total synthesis of various biologically active natural products.

GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM

We are an organic chemistry-focused research group from Hungary, pursuing the expansion of the chemical space for over two decades now.

Our group is part of the Eötvös Loránd Research Network and the Research Centre for Natural Sciences

We have some exciting news to share! Congratulations to Ádám for winning the prestigious Patonay Prize today! Last week Sári received the Kalaus Prize and Péter was awarded at the Zechmeister Symposium. Congrats!👏👏
Transforming unactivated alkenes into (E) or even elusive (Z) unsaturated conjugated carbonyls without metals? - Thianthrenium chemistry furnishing pheromones. Take a look at @angew_chem, just accepted!

We are sad to inform you that Zoltan G. Hajos, a groundbreaking pioneer of #organocatalysis, has passed away. An inspirational chemist and a true gentleman who went the extra mile without any expectation of reward or recognition. Sadly, he ended up getting none. https://t.co/MsqivojfH7 SoosGroup photo
Greetings from the top of Hungary after this year's National Alkaloid and Flavonoid workshop of the HAS. https://t.co/SzDWwJd1iz SoosGroup photo
Flashback to our latest celebration joined by alumni members of the lab 🙂🥳 https://t.co/iLr9zZeU2c SoosGroup photo
Greetings from #BOSSXVII Namur! Our posters will be presented tomorrow, pass by if you are interested in total syntheses (P306, 318, 332), strained heterocycles (P344, 345, 374) or FLP chemistry ( P356, 376, 378)! #BOSS2022 #BOSS_symposium https://t.co/7g0N5eyQ3t SoosGroup photo
We join the organic and catalytic chemistry communities in mourning the loss of István T. Horváth (1953 – 2022). Our thoughts go out to his family. Take a look back at his impressive achievements: https://t.co/qUmVO89v0O https://t.co/kBKcn6CbrL SoosGroup photo
The typewriter that brought chemists a deeper intimacy with organocatalysis. As Zoltán Hajos wrote: "our results may be considered an example of a simplified model of a biological system in which (S)-(-)-proline plays the role of an enzyme." @JOC_OL https://t.co/iZ3Pw9cHlK https://t.co/1fvCQmEk01 SoosGroup photo
Nice achievement from our neighbour group in @J_A_C_S: Photoinduced Changes in Aromaticity Facilitate Electrocyclization of Dithienylbenzene Switches https://t.co/9GPF5juDhB
