In this lecture, we will discuss on our work concerning the development of novel
synthetic methods using photocatalysis and electrochemistry. Particular focus will be devoted to
explain how these methods can benefit from continuous-flow processing.
Timothy Noël received in 2004 his MSc degree (Industrial Chemical Engineering) from
the KaHo Sint-Lieven in Ghent. He then moved to Ghent University to obtain a PhD at the Laboratory
for Organic and Bioorganic Synthesis (2005-2009). Next, he crossed the ocean to work at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow with Professor
Stephen L. Buchwald. Returning to Europe, he became assistant professor in 2012 and associate
professor in 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology. In 2020, he was promoted to Full Professor
at the University of Amsterdam where he is the Chair of Flow Chemistry. His research interests are
flow chemistry, homogeneous catalysis and organic synthesis. His research on flow chemistry was
recognized with several awards, including the DECHEMA award (2017), the Hoogewerff
Jongerenprijs (2019) and the IUPAC-ThalesNano Flow Chemistry Award (2020). He is the editor in
chief of Journal of Flow Chemistry.
