LECTURE II:  Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Synthesis But Were Afraid to Ask

Abstract:

O.K., perhaps not everything, but some insights will be offered into the development of new and efficient methods for the preparation of diverse classes of organic compounds with unprecedented structures and important functions.

These finds will be accompanied by an uncompromising critique of the existing strategies and tactics of chemical synthesis; and the (often conflicting) factors that influence modern synthesis design.  Highly subjective and inflammatory remarks pertaining to future developments in the field will be delineated.
