(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)Metal oxo intermediates are evoked and observed in a wide range of natural and man-made catalytic system. These varied systems demonstrate divergent reactivity modes dependent on perturbations to the electronic structure ...
Synthesis and optimization of synthetic intermediates to access C21-oxygenated aspidosperma alkaloids (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)Synthesis and optimization of C21-oxygenated pentacyclic aspidosperma core is described. A highly effective enzymatic resolution of a non-[beta]-branched primary alcohol (E=22) allowed rapid preparation of both enantiomeric ...
