    Atom Transfer Catalysis

    With our experience in sulfur chemistry we were able to contribute to the development of a molybdenum-catalyzed sulfur transfer reaction from elemental sulfur to isonitriles and reactive alkenes [111, 115]. Such S-transfer reactions have only a small thermodynamic driving force and are therefore more difficult to achieve than the corresponding O-tranfers [112].
