Total Synthesis of Neurologically Active Terpenoid Natural Products
Seminar | February 27 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
This talk will describe the total synthesis of neurologically active terpenoid natural products using novel strategies and methodologies for step-efficient syntheses. Methodological developments in the area of allyl-palladium catalysis will be described in detail that have allowed for alpha,beta-dehydrogenation of a variety of carbonyl compounds. Unique strategies and key retrosynthetic disconnections are guided by computational investigation.
Light refreshments will be served at 10:50 at The Coffee Lab
