A Pd-catalysed cyclisation strategy to chiral nitrogen heterocycles

Department of Chemistry

About the Project

We have recently devised a novel conjunctive reagent that is generated in the presence of a palladium catalyst, and demonstrated that this can be exploited in the synthesis of chiral heterocyclic products. In addition, the employment of chiral ligands in this reaction allows these products to be accessed with high enantiocontrol. This project will apply the methodology towards the synthesis of chiral natural products, and will seek to develop a clear mechanistic picture allowing new chiral ligands to be identified by rational design.
