Synthesis of (1S,2R)-1-Phenyl-2-(hydroxymethyl)-N,N-diethyl Cyclopropane Carboxamide (3).
He has devised conceptually novel approaches to catalyst and reaction design with important applications in the synthesis of chiral cyclopropanes, amines, and heterocyclic derivatives.
In the Emerging Organic Synthesis Symposium, graduate student Ian Young, ACIC, presented work he has carried out with Michael Kerr, MCIC, at the University of Western Ontario in the development of a new cycloaddition reaction, in which nitrones and cyclopropanes are coupled to make highly functionalized heterocycles.
