[0200] Enantioselective Synthesis of Heterocycles from Carbon-Carbon Multiple Bonds

Limited Capacity seats available

This lecture will emphasize a reactivity driven approach to development of electrophilic catalysts for addition, rearrangement, cycloaddition and coupling reactions of C-C multiple bonds. More specifically, the application of cationic gold(I) complexes, chiral counterions and chiral acids. in enantioselective transformations initiated by π-activation will be discussed. Particular attention will be devoted to the mechanistic hypotheses that form the basis for catalyst discovery and the development of new reactions.
