Advanced Synthesis — From Nature to the Lab This module builds on knowledge of core organic chemistry by exploring advanced synthetic pathways. The module is useful preparation for those planning to spend their final year carrying out a synthetic placement in industry e.
First, the module will outline how biological systems achieve the synthesis of complex natural products through biosynthetic pathways. Next, advanced retrosynthesis will be covered, in particular Diels-Alder and umpolung reactions.
Aspects of stereoselective synthesis using organo-main group synthetic approaches will then feature. Finally, a range of approaches for the introduction of nitrogen into complex molecules will be discussed since nitrogen-containing functional groups are widespread in pharmaceutical and agrochemical compounds.
Learning objectives to devise biosynthetic routes to polyketides, terpenes and alkaloids to devise complex synthetic routes to target molecules using a range of new types of disconnections e.
Diels-Alder, umpolung, organo-main group reactions. It will also provide a forward look into the strategy and planning of synthesis of complex molecules. Biosynthesis of Polyketides, Terpenes and Alkaloids 4 lectures and 1 workshop This course will provide an introduction to biosynthetic pathways and reactions.
Specific examples of biosynthesis will focus on those types of targets covered in the rest of this module and will include: Advanced Retrosynthesis 4 lectures and 1 workshop The course will explore guidelines for developing modern synthetic strategies, including formation of cyclic compounds using Diels-Alder reactions asymmetric, intramolecular and polymer-supported reactions and approaches using umpolung reverse polarity reactions.
The strategies will be illustrated with the synthesis of biologically important target molecules.
Stereocontrolled Synthesis using Organo-Main Group Chemistry 4 lectures and 1 workshop The course will examine methods for the stereocontrolled synthesis of key functionality found in natural products using reagents that contain phosphorus, sulfur, silicon and boron.
Examples based on natural product targets will include stereocontrolled formation of alkenes, vicinal 1,2 stereocentres and stereotriads 1,2,3-stereocentres.
Synthesis of Nitrogen-containing Pharmaceuticals and Natural Products 4 lectures and 1 workshop This course will cover the synthetic strategies used to introduce nitrogen into molecules, including:Professor Carreira's research program focuses on the asymmetric synthesis of biologically active, stereochemically complex, natural products.
Target molecules are selected which pose unique challenges in asymmetric bond construction. This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book.
