Résumé de la conférence "Exploring Selectivity in Catalysis" - 9 juin 2017 :
Chirality provides a superb testing ground for novel catalytic transformations, and exploring stereochemical space in synthetic chemistry. This lecture will show precise control of stereochemistry in catalytic C-C bond formation with highly reactive Grignard and organolithium reagents. Multistage chiral catalysts are also introduced that allow non-invasive control of catalytic function with light. Finally novel approaches to control selectivity in catalysis using sustainable Fe-based catalysts will be discussed and prospects for ultrafast catalytic cross coupling reactions. See : a) M.
