Poster #166: Samantha Kraus – Rate Profiling the Impact of Remote Functional Groups on the Redox-Relay Heck Reaction

Faculty mentor: Matthew Sigman

The redox-relay Heck reaction allows for the construction of quaternary stereocenters with high enantioselectivity. Previous kinetic studies revealed the impact of distance between alkene and terminal group on the rate of a variety of alcohols. This study examines the effect of the terminal group on the rate of the redox-relay Heck reaction and employs the tools of Multivariate Linear Regression to create a predictive model for the rate of reaction.
