Stratingh seminar - Clément Mazet: Iridium and Palladium Hydrides in Selective Isomerizations

When:Th 21-04-2016 16:00 - 17:00

Catalytic isomerization reactions are − in essence − ideal transformations as they allow complete refunctionalizati-on of a given substrate upon an internal redox process and usually do not require the use of expensive and po-tentially toxic reagents and additives. The isomerizations developed in our laboratory rely on the use of well-defined, highly reactive, late transition metal hydride complexes. Highlights of these methodologies along with some of their mechanistic features will be presented.
