Monday September 23rd, 2013 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101
Our group is interested in discovering new catalytic asymmetric rearrangements, which are synthetically powerful chemical transformations for the assembly of complex molecules. We have developed a series of enantioselective [2,3]-rearrangements, including an allylic amination of unactivated olefins via a [2,3]-rearrangement and a Meisenheimer rearrangement of allylic amine N-oxides. Our efforts in this area have provided […]
