Professor Tim Newhouse
Department of Chemistry
Yale University

 will present a talk entitled:

“Total Synthesis of Neurologically Active Terpenoid Natural Products”

Abstract:
This talk will describe the total synthesis of neurologically active terpenoid natural products using novel strategies and methodologies for step-efficient syntheses.  Methodological developments in the area of allyl-palladium catalysis will be described in detail that have allowed for alpha,beta-dehydrogenation of a variety of carbonyl compounds.  Unique strategies and key retrosynthetic disconnections are guided by computational investigation.
