MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

 

Cooperative Catalysis

We are working on cooperative catalysis, catalysis involving more than one organocatalyst. One aspect of this research is merging NHC-catalysis with secondary amine catalysis for the synthesis of various heterocyclic compounds.

N-Heterocyclic Carbene (NHC)-Organocatalysis

NHC-organocatalyzed umpolung (reversal of normal mode of reactivity) of aldehydes can lead to the formation of nucleophilic acyl anion intermediates, homoenolate intermediates, and enolate intermediates depending on the reaction conditions. This has resulted in the construction of various carbocycles and heterocycles via. unique carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bond-forming reactions.

Aryne Chemistry

We are working on various carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bond-forming reactions utilizing arynes, which are highly reactive intermediates having the potential for numerous applications in organic synthesis. Key to success of the resurgence of interest in the rich chemistry of arynes is primarily the mild condition for their generation by the fluoride-induced 1,2-elimination of 2-(trimethylsilyl)aryl triflates. The versatile transition-metal-free applications of arynes include cycloaddition reactions, insertion reactions and multicomponent reactions. (Chem. Soc. Rev. 2012, 41, 3140; Angew. Chem., Int. Ed. 2012, 51, 1520.)
