Seminar: Prof. Martin Banwell - New methodologies for the synthesis of biologically active natural products

Thursday, 15 March 2018 - 12:00pm – Thursday, 15 March 2018 - 1:00pm  |  CHEMSCI M10

Speaker: Prof. Martin Banwell

A variety of methodologies and/or combinations of methodologies have been developed in our labs for the synthesis of a diverse range of biologically active natural products.  These methodologies include but not confined to biotransformations, photoisomerisations, two-metal cross-couplings, oxidative and reductive cyclizations as well as redox neutral ones. Recent applications of such processes to various target compounds, especially alkaloids, will be described.1
