Transition metal catalysis is a powerful tool for the creation of stereocenters in organic molecules. Both, the use of a chiral catalyst or a chiral starting material, are valuable and complementary approaches to accomplish this goal. In our group, we have recently focused on the development of metal-catalyzed enantioselective and stereospecific transformations, in the context of carbon-boron bond formation and carbon-nitrogen bond cleavage. These methods have allowed us to prepare a broad variety of useful synthetic intermediates, with a special focus on functionalized small rings. Some of these transformations will be presented in this talk.
According to the last information received from ICIQ’s safety department about the measures to prevent and contain COVID-19 at ICIQ, a total of 70 people is now the maximum capacity allowed in the Auditorium, so the conference will be finally held in the Auditorium as well as through ZOOM platform too.
For those who prefer to follow the ceremony in a virtual format, please remember that you should register here.
If you are interested in attending in the Auditorium, please, fill in this registration form to be sure that we do not exceed the maximum capacity. (It will be assigned on a first-come/first served basis). We will confirm your acceptance through an e-mail 24h before the event.
