Deaminative contraction chemistry for the synthesis of [2.2]paracyclophane and asymmetric derivatives

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Cyclophane motifs present in natural products, pharmaceuticals, and asymmetric ligands (e.g., Phanephos), are structurally intriguing and important, yet can be challenging to prepare. Recently, the Roberts group developed a strategy to build polycyclic (hetero)aromatics from simple to prepare tertiary amines. The tertiary amine templates are processed into polycyclic (hetero)aromatics using developed reductive cyclization and deaminative contraction methods.
