About the Seminar
Results of quantum chemical calculations on the reactivity and selectivity of reactions involving Rh-bound carbenes will be described, with an emphasis on dynamic models of reactivity and selectivity.
About the Speaker
Prof. Tantillo and the group of graduate students, undergraduate researchers and postdoctoral researchers that he manages are world’s experts in applying the tools of theoretical chemistry to problems in mechanistic bioorganic chemistry, chemical biology, natural products biosynthesis and structure elucidation, and mechanisms of organic and organometallic reactions of synthetic relevance. Prof. Tantillo also has long worked to improve the accessibility of chemistry for blind and visually impaired students.
