Total Synthesis of Natural Products


Deals with modern synthesis methods with complex organic molecules

Course Directors: Ryan Shenvi
Term: Winter
Credits: 3.0

This course covers the reactions, strategies, and tactics needed to tackle the molecular complexity posed by the structures of complex natural products. Building upon reactions learned in previous course, additional examples of modern methods for bond-forming reactions will be presented, as will the tools necessary to logically analyze and build complex molecular targets. The interplay between reaction and strategy development, using natural products as sources of inspiration for the development of novel chemistry, will also serve as a major organizing theme for the course.
