Limited Capacity seats available

Arylsilanes are of great interest in the fields of organic electronics and photonics, medicinal chemistry, and complex molecule synthesis due to the unique physicochemical features of the aromatic carbon-silicon (C–Si) bond.

We have recently discovered a mild and regioselective C–H bond functionalization of aromatic heterocycles catalysed by a plentiful and inexpensive Earth-abundant metal salt [1]. The method enables the direct silylation of heteroaryl C(sp2)–H bonds that both obviates the need for expensive precious metal catalysts and overcomes various limitations of previous methods. Applications to materials science and to the late-stage derivatization of pharmaceutical substances will be presented.
