PhD in Organic Chemistry – Alkyne and cationic Chemistry/mixed Organo-metallocatalysis

par Valérie GUYOT - publié le

“Developments in alkynyl group transfers through a gold-silicon synergetic catalysis strategy”

Key words : Alkyne chemistry, gold catalysis, silylium catalysis, synergetic effects, cascade reactions.

This PhD project aims at expanding the synthetic applicability of a new concept recently developed in our team for the alkynyl group transfer to pro-electrophiles through a synergetic gold-silicon association (TMS-alkynes and LAuX catalyst)[references (a) and (b)]. New and original pro-electrophiles of completely different structures are planned to be investigated so as to probe the potential of the method in the widest way. Opportunities in cascading the alkynyl transfer events with other catalytic processes to rapidly reach molecular complexity in a sustainable fashion will also be explored.
Mechanistic studies towards rationalizing some unexpected and spectacular effects observed recently will be part of the PhD program. Finally, during the course of the thesis there will be collaborative possibilities with the team of Pr. Patrick Pale in LASYROC (Laboratoire de Synthèse Organique, réactivité et Catalyse - University of Strasbourg).
