[0208] Development and Application of StackPhos, A New Chiral Biaryl Heterocyclic Ligand for Enantioselective Catalysis

Limited Capacity seats available

The development of new chiral ligands for enantioselective catalysis continues to be an important research area as the products impact a broad range of disciplines driven by organic synthesis.  Our group has been involved in designing chiral biaryl P,N-ligands that incorporate a heterocycle into the biaryl backbone.  This lecture will cover the developments in my laboratory that lead to the design and implementation of StackPhos, an imidazole-based P,N-ligand with unique ligation properties and catalytic activity.

Associate Professor of Chemistry, University of Florida
Aaron Aponick was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 1976 and grew up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  He became interested in organic chemistry at  Lebanon Valley College where he studied reactions of quinones with organometallics under the guidance of the late Carl Wigal. After obtaining a B.S. in 1998 he moved to the University of Michigan and joined  the research group of Will Pearson.  At UM, where he was an Eastman... Read More →
