Direct Alkylation of Saturated Cyclic Amines via catalytic C-H Functionalization (DASCA)
Date du début: 1 mars 2013, Date de fin: 28 févr. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

"Direct conversion of C-H into C-C bonds is arguably indispensable in modern organic chemistry, as it allows for obtaining target compounds which are otherwise only accessible via lengthy procedures involving multi-step synthesis. Catalytic C-H functionalization is the most attractive approach to achieve this goal, as it does not require stoichiometric amounts of activating reagent. This research proposal aims to develop direct transition metal-catalyzed functionalizations of C(sp3)–H bonds in saturated nitrogen-based heterocycles, with a particular focus on compatibility with a very broad range of functional groups, regioselectivity and stereoselectivity. Towards this goal, insertion reactions with substituted alkenes featuring a variety of functional groups will be explored. The development of such a technology offers an important contribution to novel, improved and more sustainable synthetic pathways and is expected to be highly warranted for drug discovery purposes."
