Colloquia with Prof. Donald Watson, University of Delaware

"Transition Metal-Catalyzed Methods for Introducing Heteroatoms into Hydrocarbon Frameworks"

Several new methods for introducing heteroatoms into hydrocarbon frameworks
using transition metal catalysis will be discussed. This will include efforts towards
developing palladium-catalyzed silyl-Heck reactions for preparing unsaturated
organosilanes from simple alkenes. In addition, new alkylation strategies for
nitroalkanes and primary amides using copper catalysis will be described.
