Organometallic-based Catalysis

The role of organometallic-mediated chemistry in organic synthesis has seen explosive growth in recent years. This symposium will cover some of the most significant recent developments in this burgeoning area including new catalysts for asymmetric hydrogenation, cross coupling, C-H bond activation and functionalization, additions of N-H bonds to olefins, and catalytic asymmetric C-C and C-O bond-forming reactions.
Organizer:Alan S. Goldman
