Description:   

Speaker:   Donald Watson, University of Delaware
Abstract:   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.
