Seminar: Prof Stephen Pyne - Organoboron reagents in heterocyclic and alkaloid synthesis

Thursday, 25 May 2017 - 12:00pm – Thursday, 25 May 2017 - 1:00pm  |  Chem Sci M10

Speaker: Prof Stephen Pyne

This talk will highlight our work on the use of vinyl and allenyl organoboron reagents (boronic acids and boronate esters) to prepare novel heterocyclic ring systems and bioactive alkaloids. This will include both recently published work1-4 and unpublished results from our laboratory.


Keywords:organoboronic acids and boronates, allenes, cycloisomerization, alkaloids synthesis, heterocycles
