Project Details

Project Description

Catalytic reactions can enhance the efficiency of chemical synthesis, decreasing environmental and financial
cost. In this proposal the discovery and development of reactions in which a catalyst enables a "production
line" of events to provide complex and valuable products will be undertaken. In addition these reactions will
proceed with high shape selectivity (enantioselectivity). In addition to new chemical transformations the
output of these studies includes intellectual capital and human resources, all of which are integral to
sustaining a strong chemical manufacturing sector.
