Taming Free Radicals: Radical-Polar Crossover and Other Approaches for Asymmetric Synthesis of Bioactive Compounds
Dr. Gregory Friestad University of Iowa
Date & Time:
12:15 PM - 1:20 PM
Biologically active compounds provide inspiration and opportunity for development of new synthetic methods and strategies. In this seminar, we will discuss new free radical methods for carbon-carbon bond construction en route to chiral amines, and new strategies for asymmetric synthesis of polyols. Applications of these new developments to synthesis of bioactive natural products will illustrate their feasibility and generality.
