About This Event:

Research Focus:

Despite the power of modern organic chemistry, efficient synthesis of complex molecular scaffolds remains an unmet challenge. Their intricate ring systems and stereochemical arrays require too many synthetic operations to rapidly produce libraries of analogs. New technological approaches are needed to forge their varied bonds to provide scalable access to libraries of these molecular architectures. Through detailed mechanistic study, such technologies can be developed.
