Project Description

Our group is invested in the discovery and development of efficient new catalysis based reactions employing a nucleophilic nitrenoid approach. The project involves developing a gold catalysis-based approach to access nitrene reaction modes using robust, bench-stable species in a manner that addresses classically inaccessible reactivity patterns.

The project will involve training across the areas of catalysis and synthesis with a focus on discovering and developing novel and efficient transformations to access unique heterocyclic motifs and new chemical space. These compounds will be screened against a range of disease targets.
