Associated to the scholarship:10/11068-7 - C-H activations catalysed by Pd(II) and Rh(III): methodological and mechanistic studies to the synthesis of diarylethane and congeners and evaluations of its biological activity, BP.DR


This proposal aims at putting together the last findings in my PhD work related to the Fujiwara's hydroarylation of alkynes and the later achievements of the research group on the asymmetric Heck-Matsuda reaction. Our goal is the development of new synthetic tools using the metal catalyzed C-H activation as the main strategy to provide enantioenriched compounds in a practical and efficient way. The end products envisioned to emerge from this synthetic strategy are planned to feed our medicinal chemistry project, which has the 1,1-diarylethane class of bioactive compounds as a general objective.
