Professor Phil Baran


 Professor Michael Sherburn

Wednesday 19th September: Professor Phil Baran, Scripps Research Institute, will present a Research Lecture entitled Studies in Natural Product Synthesis, Birch Seminar Room 134, 11AM.
This talk will focus on advances in chemistry made as a consequence of preparing palau’amine and Taxol on a gram-scale.  The advantages of harnessing innate reactivity and embracing the logic of C–H functionalization will be demonstrated in this context. A direct consequence of aiming for practical syntheses of molecules like these is the invention of exceptionally practical reactions with broad utility for the largest body of practicing organic chemists: those in the pharmaceutical industry.
