Synthesis, Structure and Utility of Novel P-chiral and C-chiral Organophosphido Metal Complexes

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The formation of new molecules requires original methods to achieve their synthesis with greatest efficiency. Organometallic chemistry remains crucial for establishing novel reagents and processes. Driven by advances in organo'multi'metallic chemistry this project will build upon fundamental concepts in main group and transition metal chemistry to establish the area of P-chiral and C-chiral organophosphido metal chemistry. By rationally designing and integrating new chiral phosphido ligands into mono- and mixed-metal organometallic complexes, the chemist will have access to a suite of new tools for application in asymmetric synthesis and catalysis, all relevant to the fields of structural, sustainable, and biological chemistry.
