Flipping the Switch: Reversible Reactions in Synthesis
Prof. Dr. Mark Lautens
Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto
The Lautens group is focused on the investigation and development of novel transition-metal-mediated organic transformations. Some projects include catalyst-controlled asymmetric transformations while others focus on controlled tandem or domino processes.
Of particular interest are reactions which can efficiently construct frameworks of pharmaceutical compounds or fragments of biologically-active natural products.
