From Heterocycles to Heteroatom Transfer: radical approaches for chemical synthesis 

Lady with brown hair, black blazer and pink shirt smiling

The selective generation and controlled reactivity of organic radicals continues to serve as inspiration for reaction development in chemical synthesis. This talk will describe recent advances using phosphorous-based reagents to generate carbon- and heteroatom-centered radicals via sequential radical atom transfers as well as the use of copper compounds engaged in light-mediated metal-ligand co-operativity to harness and activate non-conjugated alkenes towards photocycloadditions. Efforts in methods development will be presented alongside mechanistic investigations through a combination of experimental spectroscopies and computational studies.
