Enseignant(s) :

Waser Jérôme

Langue:

English

Summary

This lecture presents the development of catalytic asymmetric reactions in organic chemistry, including important current topics of research in the field.

Content

Principles and Methods of Catalysis:
1. Asymmetric activation of electrophils with Lewis and Bronsted acids.
2. Asymmetric activation of nucleophiles with metal-and organo-catalysts.
3. Dual activation with acid-base, metal-base, metal-metal and single metal systems.
4. Umpolung of reactivity.

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

General master level knowledge in organic chemistry is highly recommended (including EPFL lectures organic reactions and fonctions I-III, asymmetric synthesis, retrosynthesis, structure and reactivity, or similar lectures in other institutions). Basic knowledge in organometallic chemistry is also recommended.
