This story is about changes and connections in chemistry research. The new places, the new people, the new discoveries lead you into an ever-evolving yet connected world. Curiosity, passion, luck and perseverance propel you forward. Perspectives are constantly changing, but by looking back the pattern emerges.

This presentation will explore the author and his groups’ research in organometallic chemistry and catalysis – from metal vapor synthesis to asymmetric catalytic C-H activation.[1]
