Aldrich Seminar in Organic Chemistry: Bioactive Natural Products and New Reactions to Prepare Them: The Symbiotic Loop
Seminar | January 30 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Medicinal application of many complex organic molecules is precluded by the impracticality of their chemical synthesis. This lecture will endeavor to detail some recent case studies from our research group directed toward the efficient laboratory preparation of complex bioactive natural products and small molecule building blocks. Topics to be covered include complexity-building redox chemistry, enantioconvergent catalysis, and oxidative dearomatization.
Light refreshments will be served at 10:50 at The Coffee Lab
