Please join us for a Molecular Horizons Seminar presented by Prof Subhabrata Sen titled 'Metal catalysed C-H activation/ functionalization and their application in the synthesis of molecular libraries inspired from natural products'.
Molecular Horizons Seminar with Prof Subhabrata Sen
Metal catalysed activation/ functionalization of C-H bond is an attractive strategy to transform organic substrates. Such strategies are utilized to install various functionalities on an organic building block and then further transform them to generate libraries of molecules with diverse architecture. One of the research areas of our group is to investigate new functionalization strategies of organic building blocks. I will discuss such an approach on indoles and their subsequent application in the generation of natural product inspired biologically active scaffolds.
