Catalytic Chirality Generation: New Strategies for Organic Synthesis
Our group develops new catalysis platforms that enable the efficient generation of chiral building blocks and heterocyclic scaffolds. Current priority areas include: (i) the development of catalytic C-C bond activation processes and associated cycloadditions, (ii) the development of aza-Heck reactions, and (iii) the development of enantioselective alkene hydroarylation reactions. Selected recent highlights will be presented.
