RSC – 26th International Symposium : Synthesis In Organic Chemistry

The Synthesis in Organic Chemistry conference is a flagship event for the international organic chemistry community.

The Synthesis in Organic Chemistry conference provides an international showcase for the core area of organic chemistry – synthesis – covering all aspects of contemporary organic synthesis and providing a forum for the ever more exciting methodologies and strategies that continue to emerge.

Our Lead Chemist Dr Hassan Harb will be presenting a poster entitled “One-Pot Borylation/Suzuki-Miyaura sp2-sp3 Cross Coupling”.

The paper discusses the first one-pot, two-step cross-coupling between readily available aryl (pseudo)halides and activated alkyl chlorides. This method streamlines the synthesis of diaryl methanes, α-aryl carbonyls and allyl aryl compounds. These are substructures that are commonly found in life changing drug molecules, such as elvitegravir (HIV antiviral), mycophenolic acid (immunosuppressive), repaglinide (antidiabetic) and indomethacin (pain relief).
