Organic Chemistry Seminar
I will deliver 4 topics on the amide functionality:
1. Direct enolization chemistry of amide via designed asymmetric cooperative catalytic system. [JACS 2015, 137, 15929, etc.]
2. Utility of asymmetric amide-based ligand for asymmetric flow catalysis. [ACIE 2013, 52, 6196, etc.]
3. Catalytic direct dehydrative amidation by a novel B3NO2 heterocyclic catalyst. [Nature Chem. 2017, 9, 571 etc.]
4. Twisting amide planarity: structural study and reactivity. [Chem. Sci. 2017, 8, 85, etc.]
These issues will be discussed with emphasis on synthetic utility and reaction mechanisms.
