Title: Selective Functionalization of Pyridines, Diazine and Pharmaceuticals via Heterocyclic Phosphonium Salts
Abstract: Selective methods that can functionalize electron-deficient heterocycles are in great demand due to their prevalence in biologically active compounds. Pyridines and diazines, in particular, are widespread components of pharmaceutical compounds yet methods to transform these motifs into valuable derivatives are still greatly sought after. We will present a selection of catalytic and non-catalytic methods using  phosphorus intermediates that enable multiple new bond-constructions on these heterocycles. A particular emphasis will be placed on phosphorus ligand-coupling reactions that represent an alternative means to form C–C and C-Heteroatom bonds.

C-H and C-O functionalization via radical chaperones

 


Our research is focused on harnessing the untapped reactivity of abundant chemical feedstocks to enable late-stage functionalization of medicinally relevant molecules. We have recently developed new approaches for selective C-H and C-O functionalization of alcohols, amines, and carbonyls, using a combination of radical (1e-) and closed shell (2e-) processes that act in concert with one another. These radical chaperone strategies have enabled discovery of new classes of reactivity to streamline the synthesis of complex molecules with biological and industrial significance.
