About the Project

We have recently developed a new class of functionality rich intermediates based on ynone trifluoroborate salts. These compounds can be elaborated in multiple ways e.g. via conjugate addition, carbonyl condensation and cross-coupling reactions. This project will seek to establish new synthetic approaches to these intermediates that improves their scope and applicability in organic chemistry. In addition, the further elaboration of these compounds towards medicinal chemistry relevant boronic acid intermediates will also be explored.
