The central theme of the Molander group's research is the development of new synthetic methods and their application to the synthesis of organic molecules. The group's current focus is to expand and improve the cross coupling reaction of organoboron compounds. Robust, air- and water-stable potassium organotrifluoroborates (R-BF3K), are employed to carry out couplings under relatively mild conditions using non-toxic components.
