Organic Chemistry Seminar

Leveraging Chemistry for Biology and Therapy: New Amination Strategies to Access Biologically Important Molecules
Qiu Wang, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Duke University

     This talk will present new amination strategies of exploiting heteroatom- nitrogen bonds as versatile and powerful precursors for rapid and efficient syntheses of biologically and pharmacologically important nitrogen-containing molecules.  These synthetic efforts will converge with our longer-term goals of developing novel small-molecule probes for molecular labeling, new antipsychotics, and arginine methylation regulation.
