Organocatalysis Short Course

Using small molecules to drive synthetic reactions

Date: 24 February - 25 February 2021

Location: Online Event

Tutors: Dr John Studley

This is an Online short course will focus on the development and application of small molecule organocatalysts, including examples and case studies from an industrial setting.

February 24, 2.30 – 5.00 pm (UK)  |  Session 1

February 25, 2.30 – 4.30 (UK) |  Session 2

Over the past decade, the application of small-molecule organic catalysts to solve synthetic problems has gained traction in both industrial and academic settings. A wide and expanding range of catalyst classes and diverse activation modes in combination with increased mechanistic understanding and practical applicability has fuelled their use across many areas of synthesis, including asymmetric catalysis and construction of important chiral molecules and building blocks.  Small molecule organic catalysts offer a range of practical advantages over macromolecular (enzyme) or precious metal catalysts, including air and water stability, low cost, availability from renewable resources and relatively low toxicity. Organocatalysis is recognised as an inherently green technology and often has no counterpart in the more established catalysis regimens.

Virtual Delegate 2020

I really enjoyed the virtual Short Course and it was very good incl. the thorough collection of examples etc.

Looking forward to the next ones!
