Thursday 6th December 2007, 16:15-17:15, Physics Lecture Theatre
Dr. Stuart Warren (Cambridge University) will lead this talk on how saturated oxygen and nitrogen heterocycles can be made by cyclisation-rearrangement chemistry with control of both ring size and stereochemistry.
This approach facilitates the use of reactions such as stereoselective aldols and Sharpless AD as well as Heck and metathesis to create open chain compounds with many chiral centres and cyclise them stero- and regiospecifically under mild conditions
