Organic Chemistry Seminar

Total Synthesis of Neurologically Active Terpenoid Natural Products
Timothy R. Newhouse, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Yale University

This talk will describe the total synthesis of neurologically active terpenoid natural products using novel strategies and methodologies for step-efficient syntheses.  Methodological developments in the area of allyl-palladium catalysis will be described in detail that have allowed for alpha,beta-dehydrogenation of a variety of carbonyl compounds.  Unique strategies and key retrosynthetic disconnections are guided by computational investigation.
