Organocatalysis short course

23 March 2023 14:30 - 24 March 2023 17:00

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.

March 23, 2.30 – 5.00 pm (UK)  |  Session 1

March 24, 2.30 – 4.30 pm (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.

When you register you will be sent links to join the online sessions.

This online class will be of interest to organic chemists- both in industry and academia- and anyone interested in finding out more about this important area of catalysis.
